KEY BENEFITS • Reduce risk by having better information at every stage of development. • Reduce cycle time and costs associated with extensive per- formance testing on physical mock-ups and test tracks. TEST RIG SIMULATION • Single wheel travel • Parallel wheel travel • Opposite wheel travel • Steering motion • Static loads analysis MANEUVERS • Straight-line accelerating and braking • Acceleration, braking, and lift-off while cornering • Steep steer • Impulse steer • Double lane change (open loop) • Swept sinusoidal steer • Steady-state drift • Maximum pothole and curb strike • Data-driven analysis • ISO lane change at maximal speed • Consumer’s Union test (roll-over stability) • Closed-circuit driving • Active vehicle dynamics assessment • Controlled braking and accelerat- ing while cornering • Straight-line stability (side-wind, road undulations) PRODUCT MSC.ADAMS Industry–Specific Product SPECIALIZED SIMULATION ENVIRONMENT FOR VEHICLE DESIGN AND TESTING With ADAMS/Car, engineering teams can quickly build and test functional virtual prototypes of complete vehicles and vehicle subsystems. This helps cut time, cost, and risk in vehicle development and improve the quality of new vehicle designs. Working within the ADAMS/Car simulation environment, automotive engineering teams can exercise their vehicle designs under various road conditions, performing the same tests they normally run in a test lab or on a test track, but in only a fraction of the time. Virtual prototyping with ADAMS/Car can be applied to almost any vehicle design — everything from compact passenger cars to heavy trucks. The software lets users quickly explore multiple “what-if” design scenarios. Users can animate vehicle or subsystem motion onscreen, display graphs of important parameters, and produce standardized test reports. They can then progressively refine and retest their designs until optimizing vehicle performance. What used to take months or years to physically design and test can now be done in just days or even hours within the ADAMS/Car simulation environment. Most importantly, the results the software provides are complete and accurate; users can be confident their full- vehicle and vehicle subsystem designs will function properly when they actually do build and test hardware prototypes. MSC.Software has developed ADAMS/Car with the funding and technical support of many of the world’s leading automotive manufacturers. Recognizing that to develop a complete vehicle simulation environment would be impractical for just one software vendor and one user organization to tackle alone, a consortium of automakers including Audi, BMW, Renault, and Volvo teamed up with MSC.Software to sponsor the software’s joint development. From this initial group, the roster of ADAMS/Car users has grown to over 30 companies worldwide.
