Dehradun, 29 Apr: Graphic Era organised a workshop on design and model on the Tyre Manufacturing Industry, here, today. The Mechanical Department of Graphic Era Deemed University organised a workshop on challenges in the tyre manufacturing industry, in which senior engineer of JK Tyre Tech Dr Neeraj Kumar Jha addressed the students. In his discourse he talked about tyre failure in tyre manufacturing industry.
Citing the role and importance of model design in tyre manufacturing, he said that, if temperature, weight, quality of the rubber used, vehicle’s minimum and maximum speed and state of road were accurately judged, then through virtual model method, best quality tyres could be manufactured.
With the help of the self-designed software tool, UMAT (user material), he displayed the mathematical and practical parameters and formulas to understand the behaviour of tyres. This could help in understanding the reasons of tyre failure and also help in modifying the tyre design.
The students of the mechanical department put forward their practical difficulties they faced while making their formula car. Dr Niraj Kumar Jha was welcomed by Puneet Gupta, HOD of Mechanical Department. The programme was moderated by Dr Ritvik Dobriyal. Faculty members of the mechanical department were also present there.
