Altair Engineering’s MotionSolve mechanical systems feature new functionality that improves vehicle durability and ride comfort for consumers. With the addition of its simulation solver, MotionSolve now interfaces with Cosin Scientific Software’s Flexible Ring Tire Model (FTire), a full 3-D nonlinear tire simulation model, enabling a more realistic full-vehicle model simulation to improve durability and vehicle ride comfort. Altair developed the interface between MotionSolve and FTire to virtually assess and tune how a vehicle handles road irregularities based on tire characteristics. The ability to realistically simulate full-vehicle models also allows for issues to be solved faster and allows more time for the engineering, both of which translate to higher quality products, says the company. The MotionSolve-FTire interface can be used for any model simulation of a vehicle equipped with passenger or light truck/SUV tires in a variety of industries, including automotive, aerospace, and defense.
