ADM703B - Adams/Solver Theory: Achieving Robust, Converged Solutions

Horizontal spacer

This class is intended for experienced Adams users wanting to expand their knowledge of Adams/Solver theory. An emphasis will be put on tying theoretical concepts back to Adams/Solver solution settings (ERROR, HMAX, SI2, MAXIT, etc.). Strategies for creating robust models and sensible solution control settings will be a focus of the course. The various phases of solution (statics, kinematics, dynamics) will be covered in detail and best practices for each will be identified.
