VM643 – Flexible Multibody Dynamics


Instructors (Faculty):

Credits: 3 credits

Pre-requisites: Vm 543 Analytical and Computational Dynamics


This course focused on the analysis of nonlinear, flexible multibody dynamic systems. The following topics will be addressed: the parametrization of finite rotations, strategies for the enforcement of holonomic and non-holonomic constraints, formulation of geometrically nonlinear structural elements, and time integration techniques. The course will involve extensive use of a code for the finite element based analysis of flexible multibody systems.
