Upcoming Live Web Seminars
Mechanical Simulation is presenting a series of web seminars designed to discuss focused solutions to a variety of vehicle dynamics challenges. These online seminars are the perfect opportunity to learn more about our software from the convenience of your own PC! All you need is an internet connection to watch and a phone line or computer headset to listen to our applications and experts in action, as they present features of the software and respond to your questions.
The times posted below are given in US Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).
- Wednesday, June 19, 2013 - 10:00 am: An Overview on using CarSim to model an electric motor and drivetrain: Suggested Methods
A common question from CarSim users working with vehicles having wheels driven by electric motors is how to model such a system in CarSim. This web seminar will provide a review of the CarSim example which demonstrates how to model a parallel internal combustion engine/in-wheel motor system, with the in-wheel motors written in VS Commands. Attention will then turn to how to use the existing CarSim powertrain screens for a system consisting of an electric motor with no internal combustion engine. For a more detailed introduction, please sign up for one of our training classes.
Wednesday, June 26, 2013 - 10:00 am: Discussion of CarSim/TruckSim coordinate systems
Mechanical Simulation receives many questions related to the coordinate systems used in our models as represented on the various screens, such as the sprung mass and suspension kinematics. The goal of this web seminar is to clarify these questions so you can become a more educated CarSim/TruckSim user. For a more detailed introduction, please sign up for one of our training class
- Wednesday, July 10, 2013 - 10:00 am: Intro to CarSim 8.2 / CarSim 8.2 New Features, including new VsV Features
The release of CarSim 8.2 brings with it some new GUI screens, navigation arrangements, and other features intended to improve the user experience. The purpose of this web seminar is to introduce you to these improvements so you can be more efficient when working with CarSim 8.2. For a more detailed introduction, please sign up for one of our training classes.
- Wednesday, July 17, 2013 - 10:00 am: How to model drive cycles in CarSim and TruckSim
In the vehicle development process, drive cycles serve as invaluable data resources on a brake system’s resistance to fade and warping, clutch actuation/clutch friction material resistance to heat, and powertrain emissions measurements. This is especially true in countries like India where the vast majority of vehicles have manual transmissions and traffic patterns are often unpredictable. The purpose of this web seminar is to have a short discussion on what types of drive cycles can be modeled directly in CarSim. The focus will then turn to modeling some common drive cycles used in the United States for emissions and brake fade testing. Similar techniques can be used for other cycle types. For a more detailed introduction, please sign up for one of our training classes.
