Adams/PostProcessor software is a powerful postprocessing tool that lets you view the results of simulations you performed using other products in the MD Adams 2010® suite of software. TheAdams/PostProcessor Help explains the basics of using Adams/PostProcessor.The Adams/PostProcessor Help assumes you know the basics of using Adams products. It also assumesthat you have a moderate level of knowledge about signal processing and that you have access to in-depthreferences on it. For introductions to Adams products, see their getting started guides or Help.For a tutorial of Adams/PostProcessor, see
Adams/PostProcessor lets you rapidly view your Adams results, making it easier for you to understandthe behavior of your model. Adams/PostProcessor supports you through the entire model developmentcycle, including:
- Adams/PostProcessor helps you debug your model by letting you look at your model in motion. You can also isolate a single flexible body to focus on its deformations.
- To validate your results, you can import test data and plot it against the numericresults of simulations you performed in Adams. You can also perform mathematical operationsand statistical analyses on plot curves.
- You can graphically compare results from two or more simulations. In addition,with a few mouse clicks you can automatically update the results in plots. By speeding up theviewing of your simulation results, you can try more variations of your model. You can alsocheck for collisions and generate a report of the closest distance between bodies at each frame of the animation to help you improve your design.
- Adams/PostProcessor helps you present the results of your investigationsin Adams. To enhance the design reviews and reports, you can change the look of plots and addtitles and notes to them. You can also show the results as tables. To enhance the presentation of animations, you can import CAD geometry into them. Or, you can create movies from theanimations and add the movies to your presentation. Finally, you can show synchronizedanimations of your three-dimensional geometry along with plots and publish the results to theWeb.
