Fast Non-Linear Multi-Body Simulations
Simpack is a general Multi-Body Simulation Software which is used to aid engineers in the analysis and design of mechanical and mechatronic systems. From initial concept designs, through to production and redesigns, Simpack is used to help engineers fully comprehend and optimise systems, vastly reduce the need for physical prototyping, reduce time-to-market and to improve product quality and lifespan.
Allow innovative concepts to be tested. Explore numerous design variations prior to physical prototyping. Optimise full system performance by performing "what-if?" studies. Design for durability. Test under extreme conditions, to failure if necessary, to establish boundaries.
Simpack is faster than its closest rival with high accuracy and reliability while being user friendly. Simpack also fits perfectly into the CAE environments of CAD, FEA and CACE systems (Matlab Simulink).
Reduce the number of physical prototypes required, Analyse design changes quickly without prototyping, Avoid costly late revisions, Avoid the need to modify test physical instrumentation, fixtures and procedures, Reduced physical testing.
Uninterupted prototyping in a virtual environment unaffected by physical conditions, Feed back improved design information quickly and effectively during the development phase, Understand system performance in both normal and extreme operating conditions, Enable prototyping to failure to assess modes without physical risk.
The Simpack base module consists of 4 parts: Simpack Pre, Solver, Post and Wizard. Using Simpack Pre and Post, users are able to build models from the ground up and view results in an easy-to-use interface. Simpack Solver enables users to carry out analyses in the time and frequency domain, even up into the acoustic range and is best described as accurate, fast and robust.
In addition to using the Pre and Post modules models can be setup using Simpack Wizard so that non-expert users can carry out company-specific standard analyses and review the results without difficulty.
The Simpack automotive module has specific components and interfaces to enable vehicle models for a wide range of industrial applications to be created. This includes both on- and off-road vehicles such as cars, trucks, motorcycles, buses, and land machinery. Users have access to numerous elements, e.g. tires, bushings, road surfaces, etc. Using Simpack Solver full vehicle analyses such as handling, ride, driveline, comfort, and NVH can be performed.
Simpack Biomotion add-on-modules enable easy implementation and simulation of the human interactions. As part of many Multi-Body Simulation’s the interaction of the human body is considered. The biomechanical human body models can be used to analyse ride comfort, handling, occupational safety and other man-machine interactions.
Simpack Rail extends the functionality of the Simpack system to model and analyse rail-guided systems. Using standard vehicle components (wheelsets, independent wheels, profiles, suspension elements) and different wheel-rail contact methods, makes it extremely versatile and easy to model inertia-fixed and elastic tracks, including track irregularities and turnouts.
