The HWPA has a new partner! Mechanical Simulation has joined the HyperWorks Partner Alliance with their solution suite BikeSim, CarSim, and TruckSim. Attend this 45 minute webinar to learn about Mechanical Simulation and their software from co-founder and professor Dr. Thomas Gillespie, Ph.D. Learn how it can be applied to your current and future projects.
Who Should Attend
About Mechanical Simulation
- Engineers that work on automobile projects
- Engineers that work on heavy truck projects
- Engineers that work on motorbike projects
Mechanical Simulation Corporation was founded in 1996 to make simulation technology developed in the course of 30 UMTRI (University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute) years of research available to the automotive community.
CarSim simulates the dynamic behavior of passenger cars, racecars, light trucks, and utility vehicles.
BikeSim is a VehicleSim tool specifically designed to simulate the dynamic behavior of motorcycles and scooters.
TruckSim is a software tool for simulating and analyzing the dynamic behavior of medium to heavy trucks, buses and articulated vehicles.
About Presenter Dr. Gillespie
Dr. Gillespie is a Research Professor Emeritus at the University of Michigan. He is retired from a 30-year career as a researcher at the University’s Transportation Research Institute where his research focused on vehicle dynamics, road roughness, tire uniformity, tire-roadway interaction and simulation of these phenomena. In conjunction with this, he was a co-founder of Mechanical Simulation Corporation. From the beginning, his career spanned the breadth of these areas, ranging from applied research at the Pennsylvania State University in automatic controls and pavement friction test methods, to responsibilities as a Project Officer with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Other notable jobs include group leader at Ford Motor Company and Senior Policy Analyst for the White House. He has also consulted for the World Bank which led to the development of the International Roughness Index, a worldwide standard. Dr. Gillespie graduated with a B.S. in Mechanical engineering from Carnegie Mellon University and earned his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Pennsylvania State University.
