Generating Flexible Bodies in Adams View Environment

When dealing with multibody systems, it is common to use rigid body dynamics. However, introducing flexibility in the system can help better capture the system frequencies and thus make precise predictions possible. The Adams ViewFlex toolkit offers a quick method to generate flexibility bodies (or MNF files) in the system, especially for parts with simpler …

Coupled Powertrain and Vehicle Analysis

Today's vehicle and powertrain engineers face increasing challenges to meet fuel economy and drive quality targets, while at the same time keep vehicle cost reasonable. Many of the new engine technologies designed to improve fuel economy create difficulties for the noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) engineer, whose job it is to assure a certain level of comfort for the occupants.
