MSC Software has expanded its virtual prototyping capabilities with enhancements to Adams, its flagship solution for Multi-Body Dynamics simulations in release 2019. Key highlights of this release include the expanded capabilities in Adams Car, designed for automotive vehicle dynamics simulations. With Adams Car, engineering teams can quickly build and test functional virtual prototypes of complete vehicles and vehicle subsystems. Based on user feedback from multiple automotive OEMs around the world, additional vehicle events and new off-the-shelf vehicle templates have been introduced into Adams Car to improve its modeling efficiency in this release.

Adams 2019 also contains new capabilities to streamline workflows in Adams Car and increase user productivity. For example, the addition of event sets, a customizable collection of vehicle dynamics events. These can be leveraged across projects and team members delivering consistent vehicle test methods to avoid duplication of work. The release also introduces a new fast-solving, simplified flexible body modeling method. Users can leverage this method for rapid parametric explorations of their design space, according to MSC Software. 

Adams 2019 now enables support for running simulations on the dSPACE real-time environment. Users of dSPACE SCALEXIO can now co-simulate with Adams. Running Adams simulations on dSPACE SCALEXIO makes it possible to conduct real-time software-in-the-loop (SIL) and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) scenarios, supporting the development of ADAS and Autonomous Driving systems.

“Streamlining the Adams Car environment in Adams 2019 has been a goal of this release along with expansion of support for real-time simulations,” says Paolo Guglielmini, CEO of MSC Software. “It constitutes a significant step forward in our journey to help Adams users make better vehicle design decisions, faster.”
