Does msmac3D include DeltaV, CDC, POR & POI?

Post by MSI »

Q: I’d like to know if today with the new McHenry 3D I’ll have (maybe in Msmac Graphics), informations like DeltaV, CDC of the vehicles, crash positions, rest positions and others.

A: Yes. All the information from the original smac program is calculated and available in the printouts and graphics. The original 2D Graphics programs run with the output from the msmac3D program and they contain all the information you mentioned and more.
Here is a related topic: Does msmac3D calculate DeltaV?

Today a followup question on where to find EES (Energy Equivalent Speed), Delta angle during collision, Velocity Change during collision, and CDC (Collision Deformation Index)

A: A first place to start is in Medit is the View menu->Run Summary
  • This provides the Start, Impact, Separation and Rest times, positions, orientations and speeds (see below)
The summary information is also in the bottom of the msmac2D graphics which you can run for 2D or 3D Simulations.
