Improve FSAE Vehicle Performance with MSC Adams Car Sponsorship

Formula Student is a contest in which university students construct a single-seat formula racing car. It’s not the fastest car that wins, however, but rather the team that racks up the highest overall score across a range of categories: design, financial planning, and sales strategy. MSC Software has provided support to various teams with its ...

No More Guessing! – Enhanced Design Insight Using the EDEM-Adams Coupling

In this final blog of our Adams-EDEM co-simulation series, Darren Simoni from DSIM Technologies explains how EDEM and Adams have been used during the design of a skid-steer loader to increase the accuracy of system level simulation using less time and effort than traditional load estimation methods.

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.

Get Your Hands Dirty! – How to Run An Adams-EDEM Co-Simulation

In my previous blog post I introduced the Adams-EDEM coupling that allows engineers to realistically simulate how bulk materials interact with their systems dynamics. In this post I want to give some insight on the workflow needed to use the coupling.

Reducing the Product Development Time of a Rotary Cutter System Through Simulation

In the agricultural and heavy machinery industries, durability and strength are some of the most important indicators of quality. Maintaining high levels in these areas requires the application of many different tests and assessments to the end product. However, one of the most time-consuming parts of the production is the lengthy process of building physical prototypes, testing them for durability, then redesigning several parts and starting all over again. This process can significantly extend the time it takes to get a product to market. This was the case for John Deere Welland Works while developing a 20-foot rotary cutter system.
