DADS — Dynamic Analysis and Design System
The Dynamic Analysis and Design System software is a set of general purpose computer programs that can be used to model and predict the motion of a variety of real world mechanical systems. Using a set of data that describes the machine to be modeled, DADS builds a mathematical model of the real system that calculates positions, velocities, and accelerations of the various parts of the machine, as well as resultant forces that act in the system. By using such a computer program to analyze a machine, the designer can simulate the behavior of a wide range of alternate designs prior to building and testing prototypes. The DADS program is often used for analysis of existing mechanical systems also.
