Is ADAMS capable of simulating heat from friction

Is ADAMS capable of simulating heat from friction

(OP)
Dear Members,

Is it possible to model heat generated from friciton in Adams? If so, then how?

Thanks for any help!

RE: Is ADAMS capable of simulating heat from friction

Write a usersub. I can't point you at an example as they are proprietary but I'm pretty sure there are tire models that exist that 'heat up'. You raise an interesting point, so far as I can see a standard ADAMS model does not maintain an energy balance.

Cheers

RE: Is ADAMS capable of simulating heat from friction

In pure Adams it is not possible, however if you run an Adams/Marc co-simulation - then it is no problem.

RE: Is ADAMS capable of simulating heat from friction

Rubbish. More politely, a usersub can do anything you can think of. It takes inputs and supplies outputs. Joining the inputs to the outputs is 'just' programming. Marc may be a good way of doing the bit inbetween.
