MSC Adams: Cutting Development Costs with Vehicle Simulationby Tim Palmer on August 2, 2018 From HxGN Global, Technology
To cut costs and drive engineering efficiency, automotive manufacturers need to understand system performance as early in the design process as possible. Corrective action and design changes occurring later in the process can prove costly and time-consuming.
MSC Adams, the automotive industry’s most widely-used multibody dynamics (MBD) software, enhances user understanding of vehicle performance with real time simulation.
Watch the video below to see how MSC Adams Real Time combines with virtual test drive (VTD) software to assess performance in real-world environments, analyse vehicle dynamics, and model sensor behaviour.
