ADAMS/Plant and ADAMS/Controls help control system developers
eliminate the need to write complex equations of motion for mechanical plants. The software enables users to graphically model mechanical systems, containing a variety of constraints and force types as well as parts of arbitrary shape, then directly integrate their Simulink - developed control system models within these mechanical system designs. Users can then simulate their systems' full-motion behavior from within the Simulink environment and visualize the results using animations and plotting. Application Areas: Aerospace; Automotive; Control system design/analysis; Global Positioning Systems; Heavy machinery; Materials research; System identification;Test equipment/instruments; Thermodynamics.
