Suspension design development

New vehicles should be unique and recognizable by their own specific vehicle DNA, on which chassis design and handling performance have a substantial influence.

The solutions from the CarMaker product family facilitate chassis development. We enable the setup of virtual test benches and the simulation as well as parameterization of real-time capable vehicle dynamics models – From pure axle design (kinematics and compliance), to axle testing in the whole vehicle during various driving maneuvers, to lap time optimization on racetracks.

Characteristic map-based suspension model

The characteristic map-based suspension model is included in all products of the CarMaker product family and features the following:

  • Linear and non-linear K&C characteristic maps with up to three degrees of freedom
  • High efficiency for maximum simulation speed
  • Generalized coordinates for compression, rolling and steering
