The new Simcenter Madymo release 7.8 brings a range of new features and improvements for all users across the entire suite of products. These include:

Benefits

  • Robustness: improved handling of large amounts of time history output
  • More robust partitioning for FE-FE contact definitions
  • Enhanced error handling of contact definitions
  • Reduced Solver XML parsing times
  • Enhanced stability: code updates carried out and libraries have been updated
  • Improved user experience: enhanced handling of DEFINE variables
  • Seat belt fitting enhancements
  • Version 3.1 of Active Human Model
  • THOR: US-NCAP and EuroNCAP versions are now included
  • Hybrid III family updated for improved regulatory compliance

Simcenter Madymo Workspace V7.8

Simcenter Madymo Workspace V7.8 contains the following new features.

General

  • A large number of updates have taken place under the hood to make the Workspace suite of tools ready for the future and future proof
  • Docking of windows is extended: dragging windows makes them dock easily or switch to tabbed layout
  • The icon menu bar will initially show collapsed, but will remember its latest configuration and reopen as closed in the previous session

XMADgic

  • Enhanced handling of DEFINE variables
  • Seat belt fitting enhancements
  • Enhancements in CAD model overlay
  • Dummy positioning enhancements
  • Recognition of closed chains in Madymo input deck
  • Active Human Initializer tool to import joint DOF and muscle activation values from settling simulation results. 

Coupling Assistant

  • Support for user-encrypted Madymo model content
  • Support for parameterized LS-DYNA input decks

MADPost

  • Additional pane layouts
  • Support for loading STEP files
  • Faster parsing of models with user encrypted content
  • Reduced memory usage for parsing of lengthy XY_PAIR tables

Solver performance

  • Overall solver speed up for Linux platforms
    • Upgrade from PGI to Intel compilers

Simcenter Madymo Solver V7.8

Simcenter Madymo Solver release 7.8 contains the following new features:

New feature

  • INJURY.IFD implemented, providing iliac force drop output according Euro NCAP specifications (TB 021)
  • The Iliac Force Drop (IFD) criterion is used by Euro NCAP as a measure to detect seat belt slip-off from the iliac wings of the ATD / crash dummy, which is considered to result in so called "submarining".
  • In case IFD criterion indicates that submarining has occurred (IFD value > 1000 N), this should be confirmed by viewing the dummy kinematics
  • Iliac Force Drop Criterion is implemented in Madymo as INJURY.IFD
    • IFD value written to .peak and .pkx files
    • IFD(t) time history signal written to .injury file

Parser Performance 

  • Overall parser speed up, most significantly for Linux platforms
  • Faster parsing of models with large numbers of DEFINE variables
  • Faster parsing of models with user encrypted content
  • Reduced memory usage for parsing of lengthy XY_PAIR tables

Solver performance

  • Overall solver speed up for Linux platforms
  • Upgrade from PGI to Intel compilers
