The Center for Tire Research
The Center for Tire Research vision is to provide the forum for industry/university cooperative research on the further development, validation, and industrial implementation of the emerging technologies of tire materials, manufacturing, modeling, and testing.
The Center’s cooperative program research projects are integrated into four (4) highly interdisciplinary research thrust areas that cover a broad spectrum of tire science and engineering. These are tire Materials, Modeling, Manufacturing, and Testing.
Mentor teams are being formed for the next project year. This is a great opportunity for industry to interact with the students from the acadmic portion of the Center.
