MSC Adams Modeling Software and VIRES VTD Simulation Tools Support

Pompano Beach, FL

Concurrent Real-Time, a global provider of high-performance Linux solutions, today announced support for the popular MSC Adams multibody dynamics simulation software and VIRES Virtual Test Drive (VTD) on its SIMulation Workbench modeling environment. Together these products can greatly improve design efficiency of engineering projects while reducing development costs and time to market.

SIMulation Workbench

SIMulation Workbench is a powerful 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 powerful 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 utilizing any number of cores, delivering better performance when compared to legacy solutions.

“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. Engineers can evaluate and manage the complex interactions between disciplines including motion, structures, actuation and controls to better optimize product designs for performance, safety and comfort. Along with extensive 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.
