VM643 – Flexible Multibody Dynamics
Credits: 3 credits
Pre-requisites: Vm 543 Analytical and Computational Dynamics
Degree Program: Mechanical Engineering
Terms Offered: Summer
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.
