    A description is given of a general purpose, open-structured simulation tool based on the bond graph method. The method and capacities of the program are discussed. Research performed with the help of the program are discussed. Models are made of a race truck in order to study and optimize the road-handling behavior of the vehicle. The final part of the paper discusses models made of truck trailer combinations. The purpose of these simulations is to study parameter variations with respect to the stability of these vehicles. The general intention of the paper is to give an impression of the modeling and analysis approach used when working with BAMMS.
