Creating Runs


Once geometries have been created/uploaded for a Project, a Run can be created. Runs are created from imported/created parts and a Recipe. Runs, once created, can be accessed from the Navigation Menu on the left.

Creating a Run

  • Click the New Run item in the Navigation Menu on the left side of the interface. (Image 1)

  • Create a Run name for the simulation

  • Select an appropriate Recipe using the Select Recipe Menu. (Image 2)

    • LegacyAutomotive

    • RoadTemplate

    • LandSpeedTemplate

    • Racecar-automotive

If you do not know which template you should be using, please contact App Support.

  • Enter the input data required by the Recipe. (Image 3)

    • desired speed in units of:

      • m/s, mph, or km/h

    • yaw and roll in units of degree (see below for correct convention)

    • Moment Reference Center (MRC) location

    • Do not move the geometry

      • Forces and Moments are reported at (0 0 0). Toggling on WILL NOT move geometry to MRC and report forces/moments at (0 0 0). Toggling off WILL move the geometry and report forces/moments at MRC.

      • This must be toggled off to use Ride Height Changer

    • Use Complex Ride Height Changer

      • Toggling off will enable the Simple Ride Height Changer. Please enter 0 in Delta Front Ride Height and Delta Rear Ride Height if you do not intend to use.

      • Toggling on will enable the Complex Ride Height Changer option

The simulation yaw input corresponds to the angle of the wind direction/velocity relative to the x direction of the vehicle (in degrees). If you don’t want any yaw, enter zero. (Image 4)

This input rotates the wheels about the x-axis. A positive roll input will result in the image to the right where the RHS tire is higher into the vehicle body. This will simulate a vehicle turning left.

Ride Height Changer: Option 1

  • If you do not know what the ride height of the vehicle is but would like to alter the car's pitch, use simpleRideHeightModel (Image 6)

    • Toggle on Use Simplified Ride-height changer.

Additional information about this feature can be found on simple ride height model

Ride Height Changer: Option 2

  • If the ride height is known and want to specify clearance and known ride heights, use rideHeightModel (Image 7)

    • Make sure Use Simplified Ride-height changer is toggled off.

Additional information about this feature can be found on ride height model.

  • Select the Parts or Assemblies to attach to this simulation. (Image 8)

  • If more data is required (such as Geometry Fields for an Assembly), enter it before saving.

  • Click the Save button. You will not be able to save if there is a simulation error. If this is the case, check through the simulation settings for red error messages below the entries and correct the issues.

  • If a rear and/or front wing is selected for the simulation enter the rotation angle [degrees] (Image 9)

    • The Base Model Front and Rear Wing Rotations are arbitrary numbers which represent whatever you want to specify the uploaded wing rotation to be. The Front and Rear Wing Rotations are evaluated relative to the base model values.

    • The wings rotate according to the left hand rule of thumb. The difference in degrees from the base model value represents how much the wing will actually rotate from the uploaded position.

    • The axis of rotation for a wing is specified in the geometry parameters for the wing via two axis rotation points. The order in which you enter the axis points is not significant, as the application enforces the left hand rule for positive rotation as described above.
