ADM702 - Fundamentals of Multibody Dynamics Analysis with Adams

Horizontal spacer
This course is intended for users who need a basic understanding of Adams/Solver and Adams/View. This course is a pre-requisite for Adams/Car and/or Adams/Chassis training classes. Presented in the class are all of the basics of building models in Adams/View (PARTs, JOINTs, MOTIONs, forces, function expressions, simulation types), running simulations with Adams/Solver and simple plotting with Adams/PostProcessor. Users who intend to do moderate model creation/optimization in either Adams/View or Adams/Car Template Builder are strongly encouraged to take the 5-day ADM701 Complete Multibody Dynamics Analysis with Adams class instead of this one.
