3D Comprehensive Tire Design Method
3D CTDM is Bridgestone's newest automated tire design technology. The leading edge 3D CTDM program enables Bridgestone to conduct dynamic, three-dimensional simulations and analysis of the tire performance and to find optimum solutions at all lean angles.
Pattern by C.T.D.M. The tread patterns are designed using 3D CTDM, incorporating smoother curves to minimize hydroplaning in wet condition. The front tire patern was designed to maximize high speed stability while minimizing vibration. The rear tire has high negative ratio to enhance cornering grip and cornering stability. Profile by 3D-C.T.D.M. The convex tire profiles give quicker and lighter handling in tight corners. The 3D CTDM designed profiles maximize the lateral stuffness (grip) and maintain linear contact pressure at all lean angles (handling).
