This paper focuses on creating a virtual model of mechanical gearbox used in medium-sized terrain vehicle using MSC.Adams software. This software is regarded as the most common and effective tool to simulate the gearbox as multibody system and to record and analyse the vibration signal from the gearbox. The paper makes an overview of modelling and simulation and performs an analysis with frequency spectrum. The paper demonstrates that it is possible to simulate vibration signals through the model of the gearbox created in 3D CAD software and then analyse in multi-body dynamics software MSC.Adams. Successful application of the virtual model not only help us decrease the cost of design work, but also help us identify the patterns of the vibration signal and the relations between the signal and the technical condition of the gearbox. The goal is to create a virtual model of a mechanical gearbox. In MSC.Adams, the vibration values of the rotating components can be detected in different gears. These values are then analysed and evaluated. The result is a simulation of fault states and identification of vibration frequencies for practical applications.
