Altair, Summitech develop car multi-body dynamics models

Altair Engineering and Summitech Engineering have together developed a method for creating correlate

The process combines computer simulation and physical testing. The two companies have worked on chassis development, including subjective vehicle evaluations, objective lab and proving ground measurement, target setting, MBD model creation and correlation, CAE driven design and vehicle development.

The goal is to establish a repeatable process, without requiring OEM and supplier data and resources which allows an understanding of benchmark vehicles and determination of baseline performances to employ simulation-driven design methods.
