Dynamic Kinematics & Compliance (K&C) System
Available only from MTS, innovative Dynamic Kinematic & Compliance (DK&C) Systems deliver the speeds and frequencies required to accurately replicate real-world vehicle maneuvers and simulate rough road inputs. This versatile, multipurpose system is ideal for dynamic deflections and dynamic model verification, as well as maneuver replication, decomposition and simulation.
DK&C systems are available in two pre-engineered configurations. A standard version for passenger cars is capable of frequencies up to 35 Hz and velocities up to 1000 mm/sec. A version for trucks is capable of applying much higher forces at frequencies up to 20 Hz and velocities of 700 mm/sec vertical, 500 mm/sec lateral and longitudinal, 30 deg/sec roll, pitch and steer. Truck DK&C systems can be configured with a longer wheelbase suitable for truck geometries, as well as a short wheelbase for tandem axle testing.
Using hybrid simulation techniques, DK&C Systems can be integrated with modeled vehicles and driving environments and /or an MTS Vehicle Dynamics Simulator (VDS) to enable the acquisition of high-fidelity subjective and objective performance data far earlier in vehicle development.
