Abstract: 

Modeling and simulation of the tire fabrication process is essential to reducing manufacturing defects. In this talk, we present some challenges in applying viscoelastic material models and setting up the finite element numerical framework.  We will also discuss a few examples of fabrication defects and how the corresponding simulation results led to long term solutions.
