How to reduce your MNF file size by up to 97%
Flex bodies in Adams are very powerful and if used correctly, could mean the difference between a right and wrong answer. One of the most popular ways to create a flex body in Adams is to create an MNF (Modal Neutral File) with your FEA (Finite Element Analysis) package and import that file into Adams. […]

Extracting Loads for FEA from Multi-Body Dynamics (MBD) Software
This tutorial provides the steps for identifying and extracting load cases from Adams View, Adams Car or Vi-Rail for use in Finite Element Analysis (FEA). This method is particularly useful when all the significant load cases are required for designing a structure from scratch using topology optimization techniques (see Doing topology optimization right). Exporting Load […]
