Adams/Car Truck Simulation

Adams/Car Truck Simulation

Adams/Car Truck Simulation

Hi everybody!
Is there someone skilled with Adamms/Car Simulation? I'm manipulating a truck assembly (tractor+semitrailer) in Adams/Car environment adding a device able to apply forces on a test tire (to be fitted under the trailer rigid body). The simulation aborted several times: maybe there's an error with the "mounting part" used to link the trailer body subsystem to the tire test rig one. I set the "minor role" for the subsystem as "any" and "analysis" for the "major role" but the two subsystems seem not to "talk" each other!!! Should I create the tire test rig directly on the rigid trailer body switching in Adams/View without creating a new Template in Adams/Car?

Thank you all

RE: Adams/Car Truck Simulation

On the plus side there is an MSC ADAMS forum on this site https://www.eng-tips.com/threadminder.cfm?pid=823

On the minus side I scarcely use CAR and have never used TRUCK, and I seem to be the only contributor to that forum recently.

Have you tried MSC support directly, or their user forums, which are pretty good?
