Mechanical Simulation Releases CarSim 8.2

ANN ARBOR, Mich., January 03, 2013 - Mechanical Simulation is proud to announce the release of CarSim 8.2 vehicle dynamics software. According to Dr. Michael Sayers, CEO and Chief Technology Officer at Mechanical Simulation, "CarSim 8.2 brings spectacular visualization from the driving simulator world to engineers using basic simulation to accelerate their evaluations of vehicle performance. CarSim 8.2 provides advanced controls of the playback, heads-up displays of any variables in the models, multiple simultaneous views, and libraries of vehicles and proving ground areas developed by skilled video artists."

CarSim 8.2 also features math models extensions that have been requested by customers. Sayers notes, "...the math models have more detail in the tire model to better simulate limit conditions, more hysteresis effects in the steering, several improvements in sensor ranging and detection, and more easily configured nonlinear
table functions." He adds, "the new LINEARIZE command is a breakthrough for detailed nonlinear simulations tools such as CarSim. Although the vehicle is a complicated, nonlinear system, the new LINEARIZE command can be applied multiple times during a simulated test to generate simplified math models that engineers can use to determine basic dynamic features, such as fundamental frequencies and stability criteria."

Besides adding functions, CarSim 8.2 includes many refinements to the user interface. As automotive engineers rely more on simulation for testing and development, many who do not have time to become experts in the details of simulation find themselves needing to work with simulation tools. Developers at Mechanical Simulation have responded by simplifying the interface for occasional users, while providing even more capabilities for the advanced users.
