WEBINAR RECORDING | Optimizing kinematics and compliances of vehicle suspension using Adams Car and modeFRONTIER

ESTECO and MSC Software hosted a joint webinar on August 20th, 2020, presenting a methodical way of optimization of Kinematics and Compliances (K&C) performance by linking the models developed in Adams Car with modeFRONTIER for end to end process automation and numerical optimization.

Vehicle suspension systems are one of the most complex systems in the vehicle which are made up of many components including springs, dampers, bushings, hardpoints, etc. Each of these components plays a critical role in Kinematics and Compliances (K&C) of suspension systems. Manually evaluating K&C of a system is also a tedious task considering multiple number of events that must be considered i.e. parallel wheel travel, roll, etc. Finding an optimal combination of these parameters which results in the desired K&C results for all events is often a difficult task to execute without the application of mathematical algorithms.
