Debunking the 5 myths of Multibody Dynamics – Myth 5: Real-time MBD simulations = Reduced Order Models (ROMs)

A real-time simulation mandates that the virtual model delivers a response/solution output at specific time increments in the same or less time than the physical system. This way, the state of the virtual system is always synchronized with the physical components to provide an accurate testing environment.  For this reason, real-time compliant vehicle dynamics models …

Debunking the 5 myths of Multibody Dynamics – Myth 4: MBD simulations require specialist knowledge

Exploring the behavior of systems using simulation has traditionally been the domain of simulation engineers or analysts. Complexity in simulation interfaces, or in simulation techniques and procedures, created the need for highly specialized users. A lack of standards for model exchange and interoperability compounded these issues. In the field of systems dynamics simulation, MBD analysts …

Debunking the 5 myths of Multibody Dynamics – Myth 3: Multibody Dynamics Simulations is the same as simplified component level representations

In this blog series we are debunking 5 myths of multi-body dynamics. In this thirdblog, we address the myth that Multibody Dynamic Simulation is the same as simplified component level representations. In Multibody Dynamics (MBD) simulations, the most complex part within a mechanism may be represented as a simple link so that its dynamics can …

Debunking the 5 myths of multi-body Dynamics – Myth 1: MBD simulation is motion analysis

In this blog series we are debunking 5 myths of multi-body dynamics. In this first blog, we address the myth that MBD simulation is motion analysis. Multibody Dynamics (MBD) simulation stretches far beyond merely simulating the motion of constrained mechanisms. It lays the foundation for collaborative systems development and serves as a basis for various …
