Von Mises stress during Motion by Jurjen Blaauw

Flexible Multibody Dynamics

Flexible Multibody Dynamics

Research in the field of Flexible Multibody Dynamics aims to incorporate flexible bodies in a dynamic simulation on a system level.New methods are developed that enable more realistic coupled simulation of large system motions and elastic deformations. Reuse of Finite Element models of individual bodies allows for the application of powerful model order reduction techniques and efficient computations of internal stresses during motion. In this way, realistic and reliable strength and durability analyses can be performed.
