About this Course:
Beginner: This course teaches Adams/Car for Formula / BAJA SAE competition students. Students will learn how to customize the FSAE / BAJA database example and analyze vehicle kinematics and dynamics with Adams/Car.

Adams/Car provides built-in sub-system and system templates together with pre-defined virtual tests & maneuvers to facilitate the modeling & simulation (M&S) of suspension kinematics & dynamics as well as full-vehicle dynamics. If you are involved with vehicle engineering work at your school, especially for student competitions such as Formula SAE, Baja, Solar Car, and Hybrid or Autonomous Vehicles, then this product is likely to be of interest to you.

Adams Car software allows students to design and simulate their FSAE / BAJA vehicles to maximize their vehicle performance. With Adams Car, FSAE / BAJA teams can quickly build and test their functional virtual prototypes of complete vehicles and vehicle subsystems. FSAE / BAJA engineering teams can exercise their vehicle designs under various road conditions, performing the same tests they normally run in a test lab or on a test track, but in a fraction of time.

The video tutorials below are designed to help jump-start your efforts to use Adams/Car for your student competition or other vehicle engineering project. That said, we highly recommend that you start by learning to use Adams/View and Adams/Solver so you obtain a firm grasp of multi-body dynamics fundamentals before progressing to the advanced, “gray box” M&S environment of Adams/Car. That way, if you encounter any difficulties or error messages in Adams/Car, you will have a better ability to understand what may be causing them (since Adams/Car is built on top of the foundation provided by Adams/View+Adams/Solver).

      Outstanding! 5

      I spent at least 2 hours daily working on the course and this course week took me a month to complete. The problem sets are designed in such a way that one is forced to read and do further research to accomplish them.
