Quasi-static kinematics and compliance tests

SuspensionSim simulates quasi-static kinematics and compliance (K&C) tests applied to suspension systems.

SuspensionSim is intended for use by two levels of users. Model users are engineers and designers who will be working with a given suspension layout, changing hardpoint coordinates and stiffness properties, and then evaluating the suspension behavior by analyzing simulated test results. Model builders are advanced users who can assemble new multibody models to simulate suspension types that are not already available from existing templates.
