Adams/Car Ride Introduction 2 Introduction Adams/Car Ride, part of the MD Adams 2010 ® suite of software, is a plugin to Adams/Car . You can use Adams/Car Ride to model and simulate the ride quality of ground vehicles. It contains modeling elements important for ride quality that you can use in Adams/Car models. You can also analyze the modeling elements independently from other systems using a modeling-element test rig . In addition, Adams/Car Ride includes a four-post test rig for four-wheeled Adams/Car vehicle models. The four-post test rig supports a variety of time-domain analyses, as well as frequency-domain analyses with Adams/Vibration. About Adams/Car Ride Using Adams/Car Ride, you can quickly create Adams/Car assemblies of suspensions and full vehicles, including Adams/Car Ride-provided components important for ride quality, and then analyze them to understand their performance and behavior. The Adams/Car Ride components are: Monroe damper Hydromount Frequency-dependent bushing You can analyze each component independently from other systems using a component test rig . You can also use a parameter identification tool for the hydromount component, to quickly determine model parameters that will accurately reproduce test data. Using the Adams/Car Ride four-post test rig for four-wheeled Adams/Car vehicle models you can simulate a vehicle traveling over a rough road or simulate a vehicle on a real four-post shaker test machine. You can play displacement or force RPC III file data into the test rig, make your own bumps with table-lookup functions and drive over them, or create and drive over a road-profile surface using a mathematical model for generating road roughness. In the time domain, the four-post test rig also supports sinusoidal sweeps (displacement, velocity, acceleration, or force) and arbitrary Adams/Solver functions. Learn more about Referencing Test Data . Benefits of Adams/Car Ride Adams/Car Ride enables you to work faster and smarter, letting you have more time to study and understand how design changes affect vehicle performance. Using Adams/Car Ride you can: Explore the performance of your design and refine your design before building and testing a physical prototype.

3 Welcome to Adams/Car Ride Introduction Analyze design changes much faster and at a lower cost than physical prototype testing would require. For example, you can change springs with a few mouse clicks instead of waiting for a mechanic to install new ones in your physical prototype before re-evaluating your design. Vary the kinds of analyses faster and more easily than if you had to modify instrumentation, test fixtures, and test procedures. Work in a more secure environment without the fear of losing data from instrument failure or losing testing time because of poor weather conditions.
