Improvements to FE Parts for easier flex body workflows and more productivity

FE Part is an Adams integrated alternative to model flexible bodies, which has mass and is accurate for very large deformation cases of beam-like structures. It provides a fast way to model geometrically nonlinear parts in the systems model. Adams 2021 has several new features to improve the FE part creation workflow. In previous versions …


Power event specific best practices by using event specific solver settings

A new workflow improvement in Adams 2021 is the ability to associate specific solver settings with an Adams Car event. This feature comes in handy when one wants to remember the optimal solver settings for a given event, especially when one wants to run an Event Set consisting of multiple event types/conditions requiring a diversity …


Event sets and variants as FMU parameters for seamless interoperability

Over the past decade, a tool-independent standard for model interoperability and exchange, the Functional Mock-Up Interface (FMI) has gained traction in the simulation software world. The FMI standard enables seamless interoperability for simulation software solutions. Using the standard, one can connect models from different software tools and create virtual system prototypes system that best suits …


Event set and event browser support for custom events

In Release 2019.0, we introduced the concepts of an “Event Object” and an “Event Set.” Previously, there was no easy way to persist or store event inputs within or outside an Adams Car session. This made the ability to institute standard analysis procedures that were repeatable and consistent.  The concept of Event Objects was developed …


A new approach to durability road load simulations

The Adams Durability Symposium is coming soon, Feb 23-Feb 25th. This 3-day event will feature multiple technical presentations from industry experts and subject matter experts all focused on the latest simulation methods and technology for improving the durability of mechanical systems. Below is an example of the type of content you can expect at this …


Simulating extreme vehicle loads using Adams, and an invitation

In anticipation of the upcoming Adams Durability Symposium, Feb 23-25, 2021, we are summarizing a unique simulation example and is an example of what is to come at the symposium. Adams is used to simulate ‘strength events’ or ‘peak loads’ where a vehicle is subjected to high impact instantaneous loads during its life cycle. One …
