VI-Motorcycle enables engineering teams to quickly build and simulate a complete parameterized model of a motorcycle in order to select fundamental design options and to explore new functional concepts prior to building physical prototypes.
VI-Motorcycle is based on the MSC Adams solver and fully supported by VI-grade developers. It provides common methods throughout corporations and suppliers for modelling and design practices. Due to its scalability and extendibility it can be customized easily in order to fit into the development process as already done my many OEMs all around the world.
Ride and comfort
Rider - Motorcycle interaction
Limit handling behaviour
Design of experiment and optimization
System-level approach supporting structural loads, life, durability, vibration and performance problems within cost, weight, package constraints
Template builder architecture which helps to quickly and efficiently build new design solutions
Data libraries which ensure component standardization and allow easy data management
The included VI-Road utility which enables to define any type of 2D or 3D road profiles
Modelling within the MSC Adams environment for full support of several specialized modules for FEA, hydraulics, controls and other concurrent disciplines
Dedicated simulation menu allowing for various types of events for complete virtual testing of the motorcycle model, either on a test track or on a two post rig
