Webinar recording: Virtual Optimization of Suspension Parameters using Adams Car and pSeven


This webinar was held on 16 June 2021

Duration: 1 hour

Language: English


Benefits of integration between Adams Car by MSC Software, part of Hexagon's Manufacturing Intelligence division, and DATADVANCE’s pSeven software platform are demonstrated via an industrial use-case involving the optimization of an automotive suspension damper.

In modern adaptive suspension systems damping properties can be adjusted on the fly, depending on road conditions and driver preferences. An optimal balance between ride comfort and vehicle handling however needs to be maintained. Integration of Adams Car with the pSeven software platform allows the setting of multiple optimization criteria and the automated study of model responses, through a wide range of varying input parameters, under the influence of various design constraints.

Advanced algorithms of pSeven combined with SmartSelection technology allow engineers without specialized knowledge in optimization methods and Design Space Exploration to quickly switch between different problem statements and obtain an optimal combinations of design parameters.

Webinar agenda:

  • An overview of pSeven and DATADVANCE
  • A brief overview of FGUP NAMI where the application was developed
  • A step-by-step demonstration of the workflow for parametric analysis and optimization of automotive suspension shock absorbers to ensure passenger comfort and vehicle drivability:
    • Integration of pSeven and Adams Car to flexibly customize the calculations of various vehicle driving modes
    • Design space exploration of front and rear dampers using Adaptive Design of Experiments
    • A two-criteria optimization of vehicle damping parameters on a rough road through a Surrogate Based Optimization method.

Stay to the end to ask your questions to the speakers!
