ADAMS

Release 12
Description: The market-leading ADAMS software system from MSC Software allows engineering teams to build and test functional virtual prototypes of complex mechanical designs, realistically simulating full-motion behavior on their computers. This helps manufacturers produce better products faster and at lower cost, with reduced risk and increased communication throughout the product development process. The company's products are the de facto standard in the automotive industry, and lead the market in aerospace, rail, and general machinery.
Availability: This software has been made available via the PACE program (Press Release) and represents the largest ADAMS installation in the world (Press Release). It is installed in the VT CAD Lab, and it is available for installation on any Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Solaris 8 (Sun Microsystems) computer connected to the "vt.edu" domain (including student-owned computers): [STUDENTS-info] [FACULTY/STAFF-info] [Windows-DOWNLOAD] (the software is also available via loaner CDs from Software Distri bution, 3240 Torgersen Hall)
Faculty Training: MSC Software provides ADAMS training workshops for faculty and students at a number of locations and times. In the summer, many of these training workshop are tuition free, but typically participants must cover their own travel, lodging, and meal expenses (Ann Arbor, Michigan): http://university.adams.com/prof_training_2002.htm

ADAMS training at Virginia Tech: Occasionally live ADAMS workshops hare held at Virginia Tech. In addition, the course "Basic ADAMS Full Simulation Package" is available on a self-paced basis in the VT CAD Lab (114-E Randolph Hall).
