The paper presents a 3D model for tire/road dynamic contact by using the Sneddon dual integral equations. The tire tread is modeled as an incompressible elastic half-space and the road surface is supposed to be a rigid rough surface.  

Key words: tire/road contact, business problem, dual integral equations
