VI-grade, in collaboration with Fraunhofer ITWM, RG Technologies and Danisi Engineering are happy to announce a 5-days training course dedicated to High Adherence Vehicle Dynamics Handling, to be held from October 17th to October 21st, 2016 at the Nast Proving Ground of the city of Xiangyang, China.
The training course is designed for anyone interested in questions like:
How can the handling of a newly designed vehicle be guaranteed to match the performance of a given target vehicle?
Which are the main aspects to be taken into account when developing a new chassis platform?
Which are the typical testing maneuvers to apply to correctly evaluate and develop the dynamic handling behavior of a car?
How to interprete the virtual and testing results coming from a simulation or measurement?
How can multibody simulation frontload and optimize the handling performance of a new non-existing vehicle?
The course will be held through the combination of virtual prototyping and physical testing in high adherence conditions on the Nest Proving Ground. After this course, the trainees will be able to understand how the theory of vehicle dynamics influences the dynamic handling behavior of a car. The training will also illustrate in detail how to model and evaluate the behaviour of a car in comparison with other vehicles, with respect to both virtual approach and physical perception.
Fundamentals of advanced Vehicle Dynamics with application and usage of advanced multibody modeling with VI-CarRealTime in combination with Fraunhofer ITWM - CDTire will be treated. Moreover, driving sessions of the vehicle with an instructor will be conducted, enabling to compare the handling performance of three different cars during typical handling maneuvers.
More information about this training (detailed agenda and cost of subscription) can be found in the brochure downloadable at this link.

Get Right on Track with VI-Rail: An Adams-Based Multibody Solution for Advanced Railway Systems Simulation
Thursday Mar 30th, 2016 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 important part of the development process of railway 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 simulation of railway components and systems. The dedicated VI-Rail software solution, developed on top of MSC Adams, allows engineering teams to quickly build a complete, parameterized model of a new railway vehicle, easily defining its suspension, wheelset, wheel-rail contact, and other vital characteristics. Running through a battery of simulations it is possible to determine the vehicle stability, derailment safety clearance, track load, passenger comfort, wear and more. The performance of a railway vehicle can be optimized virtually in the computer, before cutting a single piece of metal or running a single physical test.
The recording of the webinar is available at this link.
