Symposium Technical Description

Multibody dynamics as an engineering discipline has become an important tool for virtual prototyping, machine design and computer aided analysis of complex articulated mechanical systems. Multibody dynamics comprises a number of aspects, including mechanics, structural dynamics, applied mathematics, control methods, computer science and mechatronics. The topics of the symposium include:

  • Benchmark Problems in Multibody System Dynamics
  • Computational Methods and Real-Time Applications
  • Contact, Impact, and Constraints
  • Dynamics of Vehicles
  • Flexible Multibody Systems
  • Modeling, Formalisms, and Theoretical Methods
  • Multibody Kinematics
  • Multidisciplinary Methods, Applications, and Other Topics
  • Optimization, Sensitivity Analysis, and Parameter Identification
