RecurDyn offers two Toolkits that are completely dedicated to tracked vehicles.
The first is dedicated to low mobility (i.e. low-speed) vehicles, whereas the second is dedicated to high mobility (i.e. high-speed) vehicles.
In this example, a tracked bulldozer was simulated to evaluate the dynamic behavior of the vehicle on different terrains and with different obstacles. The model can also be used to calculate the loads operating on the vehicle’s structure, and to analyze the forces acting between the links in detail. The Toolkit contains several components which can be automatically included in the model and then personalized based on the user’s data.
The RecurDyn solver offers unparalleled performance when solving these kinds of problems, delivering reliable results in a short time.
Dynamic studies are required to predict the accelerations, verify that the cams are properly shaped, and to extract the loads to structurally size the parts.
