Detail Your Project

Dynamic Contact Force Rig (DCFR)

The A&D Dynamic Contact Force Rig (DCFR) is a new testing technology that combines a fully dynamic tire test rig with tire patch measurement sensors.  This new technology provides a unique opportunity to the customer by measuring the dynamic tire patch shape with a 6-component force transducer embedded into a 3.2 m diameter drum machine. 

The 6 force components include three force measurements in the X, Y and Z direction along with measuring the Moments of the X, Y and Z axis.  The measurements can be recorded while adjusting the road force, camber angle, slip angle, tire speed and tire pressure.  The adjustability of the tire machine and the performance of the sensor allow the capture of the true tire patch.

  • 3.2m diameter drum emulates a flat road surface
  • Advanced rotation synchronization and slip ratio setting
  • Built-in 6-component force sensor (Fx, Fy, Fz, Mx, My, Mz)
  • Simulated road surface can be applied to drum
  • Drum outer diameter: 3.2m
  • Rotational Power: 300kW AC Motor
  • Position resolution: 18,000 P/R
  • Ground Speed: Max. 180 km/h
  • Speed Accuracy: 0.10%
  • Conformity Tire: PC, LT
  • Tire Speed: Max. 180 km/h
  • Movable Axis:
    • Steering Angle: ±20°, 50° / sec
    • Camber Angle: ±10°, 20° / sec
    • Load: Max 10 kN, 40,000 N/sec
