MF-Tyre is based on a standard implementation of the renowned Pacejka Magic Formula. It enables engineers to simulate validated steady-state and transient behavior up to 8Hz, making it the ideal tire model for handling and control prototyping analyses.

MF-Tyre accurately depicts pure cornering and braking as well as combinations of the two. Robust extrapolation properties create models that are suitable for simulation conditions that go beyond measurement.


MF-Swift is the high frequency (100Hz) extension to MF-Tyre. It adds generic 3D obstacle enveloping and tire-belt dynamics to MF-Tyre's tire-road contact force and moment simulation.

Typical application areas for MF-Swift are vehicle comfort analysis, suspension vibration analysis, vehicle control systems development (such as ABS or ESC), and handling and stability analysis like braking and power-off in a turn on an uneven road.
