MSC Adams/Car KnC simulation problem

MSC Adams/Car KnC simulation problem

Dear members
I use the Adams/Car FSAE template to modify for our team's car, but there are some problems. When I try to execute the "KnC(static)" in "Full-Vehicle Analysis", it showed the error:

ERROR: Cannot find the entity specified by the ETYPE and EID arguments.
ERROR: Argument : EID
ERROR: Statement : GRAPHICS/1
ERROR: Line number : 9463

I had read the explanation of EID in Using ADAMS/Solver.But I still cannot understand the exact meaning and how to fix the problem. Have you ever encountered the similar problems?


RE: MSC Adams/Car KnC simulation problem

You are trying to display graphics for an aero force GFORCE/9, which is not in the adm. Aero doesn't work in K&C, I'm surprised this

!------------------------------ DYNAMIC GRAPHICS -------------------------------
! adams_view_name='fsae_chassis.aero_forces_undertray_force_graphic_1'
, EID = 9
, EMARKER = 828

gets included in the model. Did you add it manually? Quick and nasty fix is to delete it from the adm and rerun the job without building it again.
