What’s new in Simcenter Tire 2020.1?

By LoesvHaasteren

We are pleased to announce the release of MF-Tyre/MF-Swift v2020.1, which offers a single tire model solver for all simulation applications

MF-Tyre/MF-Swift v2020.1 allows you to perform all simulations ranging from handling to durability and anything in between with a single solver for both desktop as well as Real-Time applications!

Highlights of the new features

Substituting MF-Tyre/MF-Swift v2020.1

This release aims at substituting the MF-Tyre/MF-Swift v6.2 software product that was provided by TNO and TASS International. The MF-Tyre module is now available as freeware for usage in desktop environments.

Real-Time performance improvements

The software computational efficiency of MF-Tyre/MF-Swift is significantly improved, reducing computational effort with an average 35% during Real-Time simulations.

The Mathworks MatlabTM tooling

The MF-Tyre/MF-Swift tooling for usage in combination with The Mathworks MatlabTM has been significantly extended. Multiple functions facilitating simulation automation and tire model characteristic visualization have been added and Simscape Multibody™ (formerly SimMechanics™) is officially supported.


A completely new interface between MF-Tyre/MF-Swift and MSC AdamsTM has been realized. This new interface supports native AdamsTM roads, multi-thread simulations and the SmartDriver functionality.

MF-Tyre/MF-Swift v2020.1 is currently available in combination with Matlab, MSC Adamsand Mechanical Simulation Corp CarSim. Throughout the coming months MF-Tyre/MF-Swift v2020.1 will also be available with Siemens Simcenter AmeSim, Siemens Simcenter 3D Motion, IPG CarMaker, VI-CarRealTime, Dassault Simpack, Altair MotionSolve, Modelon Vehicle Dynamics Library and others.
