With Automotive, vehicle models for a wide range of industrial applications can be created. This includes both on- and off-road vehicles such as cars, trucks, motorcycles, buses, and land machinery. Users have access to numerous elements, e.g. tires, bushings, road surfaces, etc. Typical full vehicle analysis includes handling, ride, driveline, comfort, and NVH. Standard databases of components and test scenarios are available. Automotive models are also used for Realtime applications (HiL, SiL, and MiL).
Interface to the Simcenter MF-Tyre model, which can be used to simulate steady-state and transient tire behavior. The model is valid for large slip angles (typically over 30°), longitudinal slip (±100%), large load variations and large camber angles (including motorcycle camber angles), and is typically applied for vehicle handling simulation.
Interface to the Simcenter MF-SWIFT tire model The tire belt is modeled as a rigid ring. The model is accurate in the frequency range where the bending modes of the tire belt can be neglected.
Simcenter MF-Tyre/MF-Swift have to be purchased separately through Simcenter distribution channels.
The modules FTire/core (3rd Party) and Simpack Interface to FTire/core enable the 'Flexible Ring Tire Model' for vehicle ride comfort and dynamics simulations. The model is fully nonlinear, and therefore well-suited to extremely short road surface wavelengths. Ftire also enables sidewall contact, handles misuse scenarios, analyzes tread wear, and includes a belt temperature distribution model.
The modules CDTire (3rd Party) and Simpack Interface to CDTire enable the 'Comfort and Durability Tire' for comfort, durability and handling analyses. The belt can be rigid, a flexible ring, or flexible shell (controlled switching between these basic types is triggered by road surface info). The module allows arbitrary road surface wavelength, accumulated sidewalls, arbitrary large belt and sidewall deformations.
