Adams on a Roll

A group of hollow and solid cylinders once met at the top of a ramp. “Hey, solid cylinders,” said the hollow cylinder, “Want to race?”. So, it began – a battle for the ages, and an outcome so impressive that we recreated it using an Adams simulation. As you can tell, the hollow cylinder did …


Adams – Simlab Composer Integration (How to)

Simlab Soft Overview Simlab Soft was founded in 2007 with a mission of developing fun to use, and easy to learn 3D visualization tools for engineers.  SimLab Composer the main application of SimLab Soft makes it easy to get engineering models, assign visual material, and utilize it in creating photorealistic rendered images/animations, 3D PDFs, and …


Adams Model Exchange and Interoperability Using the Functional Mock-Up Interface

Simulation-based product analysis is now an integral part of any product development process. Users now have a variety of simulation tools based on an array of simulation philosophies and simulation intentions, at their disposal. Traditionally, users and software solution providers have utilized customized interfaces to connect models from different software sources. While customized interfaces are …


Adams Real Time Applications: Hardware in the Loop Testing for Controls Development

We continue our Real Time blog series with a focus on Applications of Adams Real Time. The previous blogs in this series can be found here (Blog1, Blog2). Modern engineering systems are becoming increasingly complex and multidisciplinary. Consider the automotive industry, for example, a domain that has traditionally been mechanical engineering focused. Trends related to …


Adams Enabled Real-Time Solutions – Benefits and Differentiators

In Part 1 of our blog series focused on Real Time simulations, we introduced Adams Real Time and detailed how it expands the traditional Adams application set and brings value to new engineering domains such as testing, calibration and autonomous development. We illustrated this value via a case study on how the Ford Motor Company …


Comprehensive vehicle testing without an assembled vehicle prototype

The automotive industry is up against disruptive changes on multiple fronts. These include; the continued digitization of automotive parts and assemblies, with ever-increasing electronic and software content, technical and regulatory requirements imposed by the push towards autonomy, and the fundamental disruption in core operations and processes imposed by electrification. These challenges are compounded by vehicle …
