MSC Adams/Car

MSC Adams/Car

MSC Adams/Car

I have some problems in suspension simulate.
When i start parallel wheel travel simulation (or others simulations), actuators penetrates the tire.
Do anyone know what is wrong?
I attached some screen shots. As You can see, when actuators goes down wheels doesn't "follow" actuator.
There is minimum rotate of revolute joints of upper and lower control arm.

Thanks for replay, and sorry if my English is bad...

RE: MSC Adams/Car

I didn't change anything in rig subsystem. Testrig works fine when i assembled it with subsystem from shared database.
There is warning in "message window" that actuator reached upper and lower limit.

RE: MSC Adams/Car

All subsytem (from shared databases) works except subsytem i made, i think there is problem in my template and i think the problem is "hiding" in actuator upper and lower limit warning message...
I thought that maybe i need communicator to define contact path, but testrig input communicators doesn't ask for that.

RE: MSC Adams/Car

Okay, thanks a lot.

RE: MSC Adams/Car

I figured where problem was. My bushing curves was bad (low force limit). Thanks for help!
