Take-off with VI-Aircraft: An Adams-based landing gear multibody solution for ground and in-flight maneuvers
Thursday Dec 10th, 2015 at 4pm CET
A free-of-charge webinar organized by MSC Software and hosted by Vi-grade
In the last 20 years, simulation has become an increasingly part of the development process of aerospace components, subsystems and systems, alongside physical testing. To efficiently bridge the gaps between simulation and physical testing earlier in the design cycle, VI-grade develops and markets software and service solutions for efficient landing gear as well as full aircraft modeling and analysis. The dedicated VI-Aircraft software solution, developed on top of MSC Adams, allows engineering teams to quickly build and test a complete, parameterized model of a new aircraft, easily defining its landing gear layout, wheel arrangement, energy absorption, and other vital characteristics. Then, without leaving their engineering workstations, the team's members can run the model through several predetermined kinematic, static, and dynamic simulation scenarios to determine the vehicle's flotation, stability, loads, and passenger comfort. Test measurements can be analyzed immediately and test equipment can be quickly modified.
The recording of the webinar is available at this link.
VI-grade will participate to the "La simulation numérique pour la décision en ingénierie des systèmes complexes" event dedicated to simulation solutions to be held on November 26th, 2015 in Palaiseau, France.
VI-grade will participate to the event together with its partner Accsimia.

To learn vehicle dynamics software used by leading motorsport teams and automotive OEMs
To get in touch with vehicle dynamicists from sponsoring companies
To improve your vehicle design in a virtual environment for real results at the next FSAE event
To join the VI-grade network of vehicle specialists and software developers
To add important competences to your resume for your future career in the automotive industry
Additionally, all teams submitting results will be included in a presentation brochure that will be distributed by the organizing committee to a selected database of leading automotive companies and Tier1 suppliers!
WHAT IS VIRTUAL FORMULA:
Virtual Formula 2016, realized with the endorsement of MSC Software, is built upon the rules and regulations of the popular Formula SAE and Formula Student. The competition will be based on the usage of VI-Motorsport, VI-grade’s interactive simulation environment for motorsport vehicle modeling and dynamic analysis, as well as of Adams/Car, the de-facto standard multibody vehicle dynamics simulation solution from MSC Software. All registered teams will be granted access to a complete state-of-the-art racing simulation software to find the best set-up for their car.
The participating teams will be challenged to optimize the performance of a virtual race car, minimizing the lap time on a given autocross track. The competition will be won by the team that will drive the vehicle with the shortest lap-time on the given circuit. Extra points will be assigned to teams that will demonstrate their ability to minimize fuel consumption, perform additional dynamic maneuvers and dimension the vehicle suspension according to the calculated loads.
The team results will be evaluated by a technical committee formed by vehicle dynamicists from VI-grade and MSC Software. The winning team will be awarded with a complete software package including multiple user access to the VI-Motorsport and Adams/Car technologies.
Additionally, all teams submitting results will be included in a presentation brochure that will be distributed by the organizing committee to a selected database of leading automotive companies and Tier1 suppliers.
