Duration: 1 hour
Presented by: Joe Little, Associate Technical Representative

Adams/Car and the Baja and Formula SAE Templates allow students to rapidly create a full dynamic model of their student competition vehicle and simulate complex dynamic events. These templates provide a pre-modeled vehicle that typically only needs hard point, shock, tire, and mass properties defined to begin running simulations and doing design studies.

After some introductory setup information, this SimAcademy session will discuss general vehicle modeling and simulation concepts. An example vehicle design problem will then be solved to demonstrate how Adams/Car is used to make real-world design decisions.

Though this session focuses on the FSAE templates, the information is applicable to other student competitions as well.

During this session, you will learn how to:
  • Access and install the FSAE and Mini-Baja Templates.
  • Run simulations with the Template Vehicle
  • Modify the template to represent your vehicle
  • Conduct a design study to examine the effect of moving hard points on vehicle performance
About the Presenter: Joseph Little is a new Adams/Car Support Engineer as well as a former FSAE Chassis Section Lead. In addition to using Adams to analyze suspension designs and their effects on vehicle performance, he has experience both in and outside of FSAE using Adams/Car to generate loads for component analysis and optimization.
