It focuses on the hydro-mechanical, thermodynamic, environmental, and mathematical aspects of dynamic meteorology, addressing specific physical or mathematical problems in each chapter and reviewing existing approaches to their solutions, with emphasis on the modeling of regional atmospheric processes, the numerical solution of differential equations with partial derivatives, and the theory of convective diffusion parameterization of sub-scale processes.
In order to consider the tire performance under such conditions as part of the vehicle control system, an adequate tire model is needed; this effort includes the model development, the parameterization of the model, and the collection of the experimental tire-ice data needed for model parameterization and validation.
