Highlights of Tire Tech 2010

Filed under: General, Tires — Notch @ 7:28 am

I am in Germany this week for the Tire Tech 2010 conference and trade show. As I type this, I can see the huge convention center – the Koelnmesse – from my hotel window.

It’s a packed program with many essential talks, but one session I wanted to highlight is Day 1, Session 2 – The Status of Car Tire Runflat and Run-On Performance. This is essentially a mini-conference on run-flats being held within the larger Tire Tech conference. It will have six talks and a panel discussion, including presentations from Bridgestone Europe, Mercedes, Ford, Pirelli, Goodyear, and Sumitomo. If you have any interest in the sector, this one will be essential.

There are also interesting sessions on Steel and Textile Reinforcements (Session 4), Polymers and Fillers (Session 5), and new manufacturing developments (Session 3). Notch is presenting in Session 1, which addresses conditions after the recession. Day 2 brings sessions on virtual modeling for tire design (Session 1), the Rubber in Engineering Group (Session 2), future developments in commercial tires (Session 3), TYROSAFE (Session 4), Global Regulations (Session 5), and Modern Tire Testing (Session 6).
