Automotive Transmission simulation

The above URL contains the entire discussion. Below is a snippet.

I am an undergraduate mechanical engineer, working on ‘Dual-CLutch Transmission’ as my final year project. I was wondering if anyone could help me with simulations with MSC MD ADAMS software, more specifically, how to use the contact joints, gear joints and step functions?


STEP5 works exactly like it says in the manual.

Contacts are a bit tricky, what sort of bodies are you trying to detect contact between?

gear constraints are conceptually weird but work like the manual says, in my experience.
