Vehicle Tire and Wheel Creation in BRL-CAD

Report No. ARL-CR-625
Authors: Clifford Yapp
Date/Pages: April 2009; 26 pages
Abstract: Vehicle wheels are often approximated in BRL-CAD models with tori, cylinders, or other basic geometric shapes that represent a very rough visual and geometric approximation of a tire/wheel combination. The tire modeling tool written for BRL-CAD provides users with the ability to rapidly generate complex tire and wheel structures with standard dimensional input information.
