Concurrent now offers complete multibody dynamics solutions using MSC Adams on its SIMulation Workbench platform.

Concurrent Real-Time, a global provider of Linux solutions, now provides support for the MSC Adams multibody dynamics simulation software and VIRES Virtual Test Drive (VTD) on its SIMulation Workbench modeling environment. 

SIMulation Workbench

SIMulation Workbench is a real-time, modeling environment that provides a complete framework for developing and executing real-time hardware-in-the-loop and man-in-the-loop simulations for automotive, aerospace and defense applications. Its GUI allows users to conveniently configure, start, stop, record and play back simulation runs. SIMulation Workbench provides fast, direct shared-memory-access to all of a simulation’s parameters and signals. It enables complex multi-rate simulations to be run on a single multi-processor system using any number of cores.

“The combination of SIMulation Workbench and Adams is a big win-win for design engineers.” says Ken Jackson, president and CEO of Concurrent Real-Time. Together, these widely-used simulation tools will take modeling performance and productivity to a new level. Both Adams models and VTD software can now leverage the real-time determinism of Concurrent platforms to improve product development in automotive projects such as advanced driver-assistance.”

Adams Multibody Dynamics

Adams modeling software helps engineers to study the dynamics of moving parts, and how loads and forces are distributed throughout mechanical systems. Adams improves engineering productivity and reduces product development costs by enabling early system-level design validation. Along with analysis capabilities, Adams is optimized for large-scale problems, taking advantage of high-performance computing environments.

VIRES Virtual Test Drive

Virtual Test Drive (VTD) is a complete tool chain for the creation, configuration, presentation and evaluation of virtual environments in the scope of road and rail based simulations. VTD is used for the development of advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and automated driving systems as well as the core for training simulators, covering the full range from generation of 3D content to the simulation of complex traffic scenarios, and finally to the simulation of simplified or physically driven sensors. This open and modular package is used in SiL, DiL, ViL, and HiL applications and may also be operated as co-simulations including 3rd party custom packages.
