Balance conflicting performance characteristics like comfort and handling, but also stability, agility, drivability and fuel economy. The increasing integration of active controls, together with the use of electrified chassis systems, makes engineering activities even more complex.
Simcenter provides an integrated approach for developing a vehicle and its chassis components that address the multi-disciplinary nature of all these mechatronic systems thanks to seamless integration and co-simulation capabilities with the controller models. The system simulation approach enables engineers to frontload design decisions for chassis components and their layouts and provides scalable solutions all along the design and validation process, from model-in-the-loop (MiL), software-in-the-loop (SiL) to hardware-in-the-loop (HiL). This helps you reach vehicle system dynamics and chassis component performance targets faster while maintaining (or even improving) your engineering brand values.
Accurately represent tire behavior throughout the vehicle design process.
Accelerate the design of robust chassis components and subsystems like steering and braking, shock absorbers, active roll stabilizer bars and any mechatronic system related to chassis. Our scalable, multi-disciplinary modeling platform and its off-the-shelve templates help you assess technology risks that result from chassis electrification, and use the most appropriate level of detail according to your simulation needs and available parameters. Simcenter helps you integrate these systems within the vehicle, and validate control strategies.
Effectively predict vehicle system dynamics performance and accelerate decision-making on vehicle layout using a modular and scalable approach that provides increased modeling relevance for early phases of vehicle design. A template-based, easy-to-use modeling approach enables you to run simulations faster than real-time for controls validation. This modeling continuity closes the gap between vehicle mechanical engineering and controls engineering, increasing system quality and avoiding late problems that impact time-to-market.
