SMD102 - Fundamentals of Multibody Dynamics Analysis with SimDesigner

Horizontal spacer

This course gives you the foundation you'll need to begin using SimDesigner Motion for CATIA V5. The backbone of the SimDesigner product is Adams; the most powerful virtual prototyping, testing, and visualization tool in the world.

Length: 
2 days
Pre-requisites : 
This course is intended for users that have fundamental CATIA V5 knowledge. Experience with Part Design, Assembly Design and DMU Kinematics workbenches is recommended.
Topics: 
  • Transform kinematics CATIA V5 models to Adams/Solver friendly mechanisms.
  • Convert assembly constraints to mechanism constraints:
    • Standard joints (hinges, sliders, etc...)
    • Joint primitives
    • Complex (couplers, etc...)
    • Curve (cam-follower, pin-in-slot)
  • Actuate a system with:
    • Ideal and complex part motion
    • Applied forces
    • Gravity
  • Connect parts with more realistic forces:
    • Simple (springs, dampers, etc...)
    • Contacts and collisions
  • Measure quantities of interest (displacements, velocities, accelerations, applied loads, forces)
  • Precisely control and manage your simulations
  • Investigate test results via animations and plots
  • Manage files generated by exporting from CATIA V5 interface to Adams/View and/or Adams/Solver
