We recently conducted a technical investigation into the systems modelling approach to train simulation. This blog post will cover what was created and outline the capabilities and next steps that it could be expanded upon. Basis of the library We used the VeSyMA library as a base, this provided...

Creating an articulated lorry using a car simulator
The Claytex team was posed a question recently; “How easy would it be to create an articulated truck model with what we’ve got already?” My immediate thought was that it should be easy. The dynamics are no different from a conventional car and trailer and apart from a couple...
Vehicle Simulations with Degraded Suspension Bushes
The majority of vehicle simulations are for vehicles in optimal or close to optimal conditions. However, evaluating the vehicle which is in a worn condition can severely inhibit its performance and greatly increase peak loads. This can accelerate the degradation of the bushes further, and also cause dangerous handling...
A Look Inside VeSyMA’s Quarter Car Models
Our VeSyMA suite of libraries includes amongst half and full car models, also quarter car models for simulating vehicle suspensions. Depending on the purpose and detail required, these may be from the VeSyMA, VeSyMA-Suspensions or VeSyMA- Motorsports libraries. In this blog post I’m going to take a look around...
Instant Centre for any Suspension Linkage
What is an Instant Centre A suspension linkage’s Instant Centre is an “imaginary” pivot around which the hub is “rotating” at a given moment. This is because when the hub moves up and down relative to the body, there is normally some rotation around the longitudinal and lateral axis....
An Introduction to System Modelling – 1. Before Building the Models
This is the first in a series introducing the best approach, preparation and practice when system modelling. This post specifically investigates what you should consider before you start modelling. Modelling a system can be a difficult task to get right. There are many things to consider before approaching a...
Durability Tests with OpenCRG Roads
The VeSyMA libraries have been used for many different applications, including durability studies. Such studies usually involve recreating a range of different experiments, situations and sometimes very extreme tests designed to push components to their limits. The purpose of these tests is two-fold; firstly, evaluating vehicle response to normal...
