Using Vibration Plug-In inside Adams/Car

Using Vibration Plug-In inside Adams/Car

Hello everybody,

I`m rather new to using adams/car, so excuse me if this is a stupid question. I`ve been trying to run the most basic kind of normal mode analysis using Vibration on my full car assembly, and no matter what I try I always get the same errors of "Static Equilibrium operation failed" and "Linearization failed". Adams message window tells me nothing other than the solver has aborted abnormally.

I hope this is just a rookie mistake from my part. Many thanks in advance for any input.

RE: Using Vibration Plug-In inside Adams/Car

Which other events have you tried? SE is the way it takes the assembled model in the state it is assembled at to one that is in equilibrium with gravity (and any other static forces). So the chances are that it won't run any events. That indicates either a modelling problem or a solver setting problem.
