Flat-Trac®  CT +
Tire Force & Moment Measurement System

The MTS family of Flat-Trac® Tire Test Systems sets the world standard for tire force and moment measurement. Reliable and highly accurate, Flat-Trac systems apply forces and motions to a tire running on a continuous flat belt, providing insight into how a specific tire design affects vehicle dynamics.

A new generation of Flat-Trac systems feature advanced permanent magnet electric motors, resulting in increased system capacity, response and efficiency and dramatic improvements in performance. These improvements are evident in the increased capabilities of the latest Flat-Trac systems: the Flat-Trac CT Plus can apply 6,000 Nm of driving and braking torque to passenger car tires; while the new Flat-Trac LTRe is capable of applying 10,000 Nm of driving and braking torque to light truck and motorsports tires. These increased capabilities allow for the evaluation of a wider range of tires over a larger speed range and will result in more realistic tire motion simulation and open new possibilities in hybrid simulation.

Using hybrid simulation techniques, Flat-Trac  Tire Test Systems can be integrated with modeled vehicles and driving environments and /or an MTS Vehicle Dynamics Simulator (VDS) to enable the acquisition of high-fidelity subjective and objective performance data far earlier in vehicle development.
