In order to be as general as possible the HIPERCOMBATS product has been buit on top of a general purpose MBS package. At the present time, several general purpose programs for kinematic and dynamic analysis of multirigid body systems (MBS) are available in the mafflet. Among them COMPAMM, is a MBS pacakage that These programs include collections of built-in elements (such as kinematic joints, force elements, springs, dampers, etc.) that allow the user to define the characteristics of the system being analyzed. Usually, this system description is written in a data file on disk that also includes the initial conditions and other parameters of interest in the simulation.
The usage of COMPAMM as MBS package allows to consider the HIPERCOMBATS product as a general purpose code for performing parametric studies.
In fact, HIPERCOMBATS can be used to perform parametric studies on any multi-body system as soon as the system has been defined using the COMPAMM description syntax. In the framework of this project only a 2D model has been developped for the scooter, but the code ``as it is'' can perform 3D simulations as well.A detailed presentation of the features of the code COMPAMM is available on the CEIT web server.
