Tank with Skid Steering – Multibody, Multi-Domain Physical Model in MapleSim – Maplesoft

Tank with Skid Steering

This model simulates the motion of a tank with skid steering.  Tires with a linear model approach are used to model the contact patch interactions. These tires are driven at different speeds to achieve the skid steering mechanisms and all accompanying frictions are modeled in each tire. CAD geometries and skid marks are both used to visualize the simulation results.
This model uses the MapleSim Tire Component Library
This model was created with MapleSim 2022.2
