Adams/View & Adams/Car Issue

Adams/View & Adams/Car Issue

Adams/View & Adams/Car Issue

Hi everybody!
I'm really sure that Adams could perform a feature I want it to do....but I don't have idea about how to implement it (even if I read lot of topics on Adams/Car & Adams/View user guide). In a standard manouver in Adams/Car I prsonalized an Assembly model adding an actuator and a test tire. I wish the actuator started to push on the road the testing tire and stop the actuation when a particular vertical load on tire (Fz) is reached. After that another maneuver on the tire starts: rotation of the tire axis in order to give slip angle to the testing tire (a defined a sin function to govern the tire rotation). The point is how to let the actuator know when stopping his stroke (when the desired Fz is reached!!!). I was reading about "Condition Sensors" and "Feed-back channel" and so on but I believe I must first define a variable (tire. vertical load) to be used in the function builder and stop the actuation.... Is anyone practice with this feature and topics?

Thank you very much

RE: Adams/View & Adams/Car Issue

Most likely, the implementation of the desired manerves can only be conducted using the Event Builder. Try to proceed as follows: In the MINI_1 maneuver, set only those values ‚Äč‚Äčthat are necessary for the tire to travel in a straight line. "Abort time" is set here any at which the vertical load has time to grow. In the "Condition" tab for the MINI_1 maneuver, the line "End Mini when" is filled in, where the sensor is indicated, for example, "VertLoad". At the same time, it is necessary to add the MINI_2 maneuver, in which the inclusion of rotational motion and disabling translational (if necessary) is prescribed. As soon as the MINI_1 conditions are met, it will take effect.

Unfortunately, there is no default sensor for vertical loads, so you need to create it yourself in a wheel template (Build - Condition Sensor - New). If the question is still relevant, write here and then I will try to write in more detail.
