suite of software, is a specialized environment for modelingvehicles. It allows you to create virtual prototypes of vehicle subsystems and analyze the virtual prototypes much like you would analyze the physical prototypes.Using Adams/Car, you can quickly create assemblies of suspensions and full vehicles, and then analyzethem to understand their performance and behavior.You create
in Adams/Car by defining vehicle
, such as front and rear suspensions,steering gears, anti-roll bars, and bodies. You base these subsystems on their corresponding standardAdams/Car 
. For example, Adams/Car includes templates for double-wishbone suspension,MacPherson strut suspension, rack-and-pinion steering, and so on.If you have
, you can also base your subsystems on custom templates that you createusing the Adams/Car Template Builder.When you analyze an assembly, Adams/Car applies the analysis inputs that you specify. For example, for a suspension analysis you can specify inputs to:
Move the wheels through bump-rebound travel and measure the toe, camber, wheel rate, rollrate, and side-view swing arm length.
Apply lateral load and aligning torque at the tire contact path and measure the toe change andlateral deflection of the wheel.
Rotate the steering wheel from lock to lock and measure the steer angles of the wheels and theamount of Ackerman, that is, the difference between the left and right wheel-steer angles.Based on the analysis results, you can quickly alter the suspension geometry or the spring rates andanalyze the suspension again to evaluate the effects of the alterations. For example, you can quicklychange a rear suspension from a trailing-link to a multi-link topology to see which yields the besthandling characteristics for your vehicle.Once you complete the analysis of your model, you can share your work with others. You can also print plots of the suspension characteristics and vehicle dynamic responses. In addition, you can access other users' models without overwriting their data.
Benefits of Adams/Car 
Adams/Car enables you to work faster and smarter, letting you have more time to study and understandhow design changes affect vehicle performance.Using Adams/Car you can:
Explore the performance of your design and refine your design before building and testing a physical prototype.
Analyze design changes much faster and at a lower cost than physical prototype testing wouldrequire. For example, you can change springs with a few mouse clicks instead of waiting for amechanic to install new ones in your physical prototype before re-evaluating your design.

About Adams/Car 
Vary the kinds of analyses faster and more easily than if you had to modify instrumentation, testfixtures, and test procedures.
Work in a more secure environment without the fear of losing data from instrument failure or losing testing time because of poor weather conditions.
Run analyses and what-if scenarios without the dangers associated with physical testing.
