Visteon axle driveline simulation finite element analysis tool (VADSIM-FEA) 2000-05-0176

VADSIM-FEA is a comprehensive axle and driveline system finite element (FE) modeling tool developed by Visteon Chassis Axle & Driveline Strategic Business Unit (SBU). By incorporating the best Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) Practices and SDRC IDEAS software, VADSIM-FEA serves as a user-friendly tool in creating complete driveline system FE models for the purpose of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) and component structural analyses. The tool was successfully used to generate Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) driveline system FE models as well as its subassemblies resulting in more than 70% reduction in modeling time. VADSIM-FEA makes up-front CAE analyses more efficient in fulfilling VPDS (Visteon Product Development System) objectives.
