Deformable Road

A DeformableRoad type graphic can be used in conjunction with a tire and Soft Soil Modeling road in vehicle models.

This graphic is used along with a tire and soft soil road to observe deformation contours in a MotionSolve result. Subsequent to the solution, MotionSolve will generate a separate h3d file to overlay with the main h3d result file.

To edit this graphic:

  1. Select the desired graphic by clicking on it in the Model Browser or in the modeling window.
    The Graphics panel is automatically displayed.
  2. Use the icon next to Graphic source to browse and select a graphic file.
  3. Click the Marker collector and select the marker that you want to use as a reference marker to locate the graphic. By default, the Global Frame is set as the reference marker.
