Optimize real-life performance of mechatronic systems
LMS Virtual.Lab Motion is a highly efficient, completely integrated solution used to build multi-body models that accurately simulate the full-motion behavior of complex mechatronic system designs.
• Simulate the real-life behavior of complex mechatronic systems with best-in-class solver technology • Calculate accurate loads for structural analysis, durability and noise vibration studies • Calculate multi-body models with measurement data through unique hybrid technologies • Reduce need for expensive and/or difficult measurement campaigns
LMS Virtual.Lab enables users to easily create a complete and accurate system model from scratch. They can also choose to import the geometry of models from any industry-standard CAD system. LMS Virtual.Lab Motion applies forces and motion to simulate the actual operational behavior of the new design, taking mechatronic (hydraulic, electronic, pneumatic, etc.) subsystems into account through efficient simulation schemes.
Built on more than 30 years of proven solver technology, the resulting simulation provides excellent input data to optimize the design’s dynamic performance. The loads obtained can also be used for structural analysis, durability, and noise and vibration studies.
The flexibility of individual components can be simulated with the help of integrated or external linear and non-linear FE solvers.

Customized applications for template-driven simulation LMS Virtual.Lab Composer allows the creation and easy customization of industry specific applications, which streamlines the simulation process, from reading input data, through solving different design variants, to results post-processing. The applications are constructed using libraries of template models created in LMS Virtual.Lab Motion, typically built by a multi-body expert. LMS Virtual.Lab Composer supports drag-and-drop GUI creation, making it possible to rapidly design customized applications for the end-user.
Driving dynamics application for efficient vehicle simulation Built on the LMS Virtual.Lab Composer framework, the Driving Dynamics GUI provides a dedicated interface for all vehicle dynamics analysis. It allows vehicle selection, population, solution and post-processing for platform design. The application also helps users optimize vehicle subsystems (suspension, steering, driveline) for driving dynamics performance. Furthermore, it can be easily customized and tailored to in-house processes and simulation requirements.
Co-simulation: seamless integration of mechatronic subsystems Today’s product designs rely more and more on electronic, hydraulic or pneumatic subsystems. The complex interactions between the different subsystems – which may independently behave correctly – need to be simulated with ever-increasing accuracy and efficiency to systematically guarantee that the integrated end-product will actually function properly. LMS Virtual.Lab provides state-of-the-art co-simulation interfaces to LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim (typically for hydraulic, pneumatic or electric subsystem modeling) and Simulink (for controllers).
