Introducing Adams/Chassis About Adams/Chassis Adams/Chassis provides a complete analysis environment for automotive MD Adams analysis. It does this by providing standard model types, two analysis types, and post-processing. You run Adams/Chassis in conjunction with Adams/Solver and Adams/PostProcessor. Adams/Chassis comes with many standard suspensions such as: Short-long arm MacPherson Hotchkiss 4 Link Quadralink Using Adams/Chassis, you can perform the following types of analyses, also referred to as events: Half-vehicle analyses - During half-vehicle analyses you examine the behavior of suspensions. Half-vehicle analyses include: Ride motion Roll motion Steering Compliance Full-vehicle analyses - During full-vehicle analyses you examine the behavior of complete vehicles. Full-vehicle analyses include: Step steer Frequency response Oncenter handling Constant radius The majority of these standard events come with standard postprocessing; that is, plots or reports or both. Adams/Chassis also helps you with the virtual prototyping process by: Substituting rigid bodies with flexible bodies through Adams/Chassis Makeflex and Adams/Flex. Modeling complex leaf spring interactions with Adams/Chassis Makeleaf. Using Adams/Driver to learn how to best drive a course.
