Mechanical Simulation Sets European User Conference

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Practical applications, simulations and overall vehicle dynamics will be on the schedule as Mechanical Simulation Corporation hosts the 2005 European CarSim/TruckSim Seminar and User Conference, Sept. 22 in Braunschweig, Germany. The conference, held in conjunction with the Motion Simulator Conference 2005, will take place at the DLR German Aerospace Center.

The conference will focus primarily on current and potential uses of CarSim, Mechanical Simulation's software package for simulating the dynamic vehicle behavior of cars, light trucks and utility vehicles. CarSim animates simulated tests and generates over 500 output variables that are plotted and analyzed. It includes sample vehicles, electronic chassis systems, test procedures and roads. Other software easily connects to CarSim for design of experiments and optimization, engine design, hydraulics and suspension. Engineers in design, development, testing and planning activities use CarSim.

In addition, the company's TruckSim and BikeSim simulation software products will also be highlighted during the conference.

"In addition to our demonstrations of the CarSim software, the conference allows users to exchange ideas, ask questions and generally to see what others in the field are doing with it," explained Damon Becker, Mechanical Simulation academic sales and marketing manager. Mechanical Simulation presenters include Dr. Michael W. Sayers and Dr. Thomas D. Gillespie, founders of the company. Dr. Sayers is the lead developer of CarSim and Dr. Gillespie is the author of the textbook Fundamentals of Vehicle Dynamics.

To register online for the conference, visit and follow the News/Events and Events links to the 2005 European User Conference. Registration for the Motion Simulator Conference is also located at this site. Mechanical Simulation's nine European partners will also display their products and services during both conferences.

There is no charge for the 2005 European CarSim/TruckSim Seminar and User Conference, and English is the official conference language.

Mechanical Simulation Corporation is a technology leader in the development and distribution of advanced software used to simulate vehicle performance under a wide variety of conditions. The company was established in 1996 in Ann Arbor, Mich., and offers nine technical support sales agents around the world. Mechanical Simulation provides car and truck simulation packages, training and ongoing support to more than 40 OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers, and more than 50 universities and government research groups worldwide.
