Front Suspension Simulation

In this example, the front suspension of a race car was modeled and put through its motions. Pre defined templates calculate and plot important suspension characteristics such as camber curves, toe curves and roll centre position throughout the suspension travel.

The analysis can also determine loads in the system which can then be used as inputs to FEA analysis to calculate stresses in various components.

The optimisation capability of the software adds further to the analysis by determining ideal locations for suspension hardpoints, along with sensitivity analysis which allows you to see which hardpoint locations have the greatest effect on various suspension characteristics.
