ADM 703A+B - Advanced Modeling Elements and Techniques - Adams/Solver Theory


This class is intended for moderately experienced Adams users wanting to expand their knowledge of advanced modeling elements and techniques in Adams/Solver as well as experienced Adams users wanting to expand their knowledge of Adams/Solver theory. An emphasis will be put on tying theoretical concepts back to Adams/Solver solution settings (ERROR, HMAX, SI2, MAXIT, etc.). Strategies for creating robust models and sensible solution control settings will be a focus of the course. The various phases of solution (statics, kinematics, dynamics) will be covered in detail and best practices for each will be identified.


  • Controlling model topology during simulation
  • Differential equations for integrating quantities and describing system dynamics
  • Implementing simple control algorithms
  • Performing standalone Adams/Solver simulations in batch mode
  • Using Adams/Linear as a tool to inspect the system-level linear modes
