The Multibody Dynamics Simulation Solution

Adams runs nonlinear dynamics in a fraction of the time required by FEA solutions. Loads and forces computed by Adams simulations improve the accuracy of FEA by providing better assessment of how they vary throughout a full range of motion and operating environments. Adams improves engineering efficiency and reduces product development costs by enabling early system-level design validation.

Create input and output channels for vibration analyses

Noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) are critical factors in the performance of many mechanical designs but designing for optimum NVH can be difficult. Adams Vibration allows engineers to easily study forced vibration of mechanical systems using frequency domain analysis.

Evaluate and manage the complex interactions relating to motion, structures, actuation, and controls to better optimize product designs for performance, safety, and comfort.

Adams Machinery enables users to create some common machinery components more efficiently by guiding users in pre-processing via automation of activities like geometry creation, subsystem connections, etc. It also assists users in post-processing by providing automated plotting and reporting for commonly desired output channels.

Vehicle Design & Testing

Engineers can quickly build and test functional virtual prototypes of complete vehicles.

    • Analysis of suspension, steering and full-vehicle maneuvers.
    • Easy integration of control systems into vehicle models.
    • Creation or import of component geometry in wireframe or 3D solids.
    • Extensive library of joints and constraints to define part connectivity.
    • Model refinement with part flexibility, automatic control systems, joint friction and slip, hydraulic and pneumatic actuators, and parametric design relationships.
    • Comprehensive linear and nonlinear results for complex, large-motion designs.
    • Comprehensive and easy to use contact capabilities supporting 2D and 3D contact between any combination of modal flexible bodies and rigid body geometry.
