A unique self-contained piece of code, which revolutionises the conceptualisation of automotive suspension systems in the concept development phase of a programme – the point at which the majority of cost-determining decisions are made, in both product design and specification of engineering systems.
- Tool for suspension design, rather than analysis
- Input is a combination of performance targets and package-driven space constraints
- Calculates a unique, non-iterated design solution
- Unique design process with simultaneous development of
- System package
- Linkage kinematic behaviour
- Hub and contact patch stiffnesses
- Cornering, braking and tractive steer behaviour
- Component loads
- Delivers better results than other methods
- Concept development lead times cut by over 80%
Phaedrus can be used with any suspension linkage, but benefits are even greater with more ambitious architecture linkages, which become less risky to develop.
The design of systems such as ACC are not possible without this code.
