We are living in a non-linear dynamic world and we love to simulate it. Multi-body system (MBS) analysis is a valuable tool for vehicle development processes, as it can consider these effects.
Passenger cars and especially trucks are complex systems that consist of several dynamically interacting subsystems.
To better understand and to correctly define vehicle parameter, it is necessary to use MBS models for several simulation tasks in an early development phase. These models include relevant non-linear properties, like spring and damper parameter, and are combined with finite element models of car bodies or truck frames to reproduce the structural flexibility and vibration.
Multi-Body Vehicle Simulation for Load Generation, Driving Dynamics & Comfort
- Passenger cars
- Off-road applications
Our Field of Work
Our global cooperation with customers in the field of simulation supports the development of simulation processes and automation. We can support during the vehicle development process or help to find solutions for urgent task force topics.
- Generation of vehicle or subsystem models
- Implementation of flexible bodies, contacts can be included with MAMBA
- Identification of model properties from component measurements
- Correlation of vehicle model based on measurements
