Adams Explore: Multibody Dynamics Analysis in Excel

Adams Explore: Multibody Dynamics Analysis in Excel

Are you a design engineer or a test engineer who works with Adams experts regularly to get the simulation results you want?

Are you tired of constantly asking them for results based on only small changes to the vehicle models? And then waiting for them to provide you with those outputs?

Adams Explore helps you achieve this with a 4-step approach:

Step 1. Create the Spreadsheet. Ask your Adams analysts to export a spreadsheet representing the car model by utilizing the free Adams Explore add-on feature, which you can then use to modify and run the simulations.

Step 2. Modify the parameters. Inside the Spreadsheet, you can modify any parameters that have been defined in the Adams models, like the hard points, stiffness and damping coefficients, camber angles and so on.

Step 3. Run your simulations. Once you have all the parameters set correctly, go to the Adams Explore plugin and submit your job. At this point, the Adams solver will start the analysis and run the simulation in the background.

Step 4. Review your results.  When the simulation is finished, you will obtain a full set of vehicle dynamics results within Excel, from the steering angle, lateral acceleration, yaw rate to customized design objectives like the maximum roll angle, average velocity and many more.

Use Adams Explore to reduce the drain on your Adams resources and get your analysis results much faster, by modifying your input parameters, running the simulations and reviewing your results all inside the spreadsheet.

And that’s how easy it is to run Adams analysis without the need to be an Adams expert!

    Hello! Not at this point, but we do have plan to include DOE into Adams Explore. Thanks for your question.
