Multibody Modeling of Armored Car at Off-road Conditions using MotionView

Presentation by Dr. Vadim Favorsky, Senior R&D Engineer at Plasan Sasa.

In this presentation results of multibody modeling are compared to experimental results of a middleweight armored car. The car prototype which was built by Plasan Sasa, has a monocoque chassis construction to save weight. This version has dependent solid axle suspension type for both front and rear; the suspensions were taken from Ford F550 heavy duty truck and were additionally strengthened and adopted due to increased weight.
