Full Vehicle MultiBody Dynamics Simulation: Car Ride, Driveline, Engine and Tire MBD
FEA & CFD Based Simulation Design Analysis Virtual prototyping MultiObjective Optimization
With MultiBody Dynamic Simulation, you can perform various analyses on the vehicle to test the design of the different subsystems and see how they influence the overall vehicle dynamics. This includes both on- and off-road vehicles such as cars, trucks, motorcycles, buses, and land machinery. Typical full vehicle analysis includes handling, ride, driveline, comfort, and NVH. Automotive models are also used for Realtime applications (HiL, SiL, and MiL). We can also examine the influence of component modifications, including changes in spring rates, damper rates, bushing rates, and anti-roll bar rates, on the vehicle dynamics.
Car Ride simulation
Car Ride simulation allow virtual ride and comfort engineering up-front in the vehicle design process includes the required elements, models, and event definitions for building, testing, and post processing within the ride frequency regime.
Driveline MBD Simulation
Driveline MBD simulation provides engineers and analysts with combination of specialized tools including FEA and MBD software such as Ansys, Abaqus, Simpack and MSC Adams for modeling and simulating driveline components and studying the dynamic behavior of the entire driveline during different operating conditions. It can also be used to explore the interaction between the driveline and chassis components, such as suspensions, steering system, brakes, and the vehicle body.
- Invetstigating the interaction between driveline and chassis components, such as suspensions, steering system, brakes, and the vehicle body
- Apply a specific torque to driveline model
- Define a slope of road to study the performance of driveline
- Alter the driveline geometry and analyze the driveline again to evaluate the effects of the alterations
MBD for Engine Analysis
Coupled using of FEA and MBD software such as Ansys, Abaqus, Simpack and MSC Adams simplifies the modeling and analysis of the major components of internal combustion engine systems, such as valves, pistons and crankshafts. This allows us to create and analyze highly realistic engine models quickly and easily including Valve, Piston, Piston Pin, Connecting Rod, Engine Block, Liner Connector, Engine Mount, crank train and crank shaft.
Tire MultiBody Dynamics Simulation
Using high-fidelity tire model that can be used to simulate maneuvers such as braking, steering, acceleration, free-rolling, or skidding lets us to model the forces and torques that act on a tire as it moves over roadways or irregular terrain for investigating vehicle-handling, ride and comfort, and vehicle durability analyses.
