Computational Flexible Multibody Dynamics: A by Bernd Simeon

By Bernd Simeon

This monograph, written from a numerical research viewpoint, goals to supply a entire remedy of either the mathematical framework and the numerical tools for versatile multibody dynamics. not just is that this box completely and speedily turning out to be, with a variety of purposes in aerospace engineering, biomechanics, robotics, and automobile research, its foundations can be equipped on kind of confirmed mathematical types. concerning real computations, nice strides were remodeled the final 20 years, as subtle software program applications are actually in a position to simulating hugely complicated buildings with inflexible and deformable parts. The strategy utilized in this e-book should still profit graduate scholars and scientists operating in computational mechanics and similar disciplines in addition to these drawn to time-dependent partial differential equations and heterogeneous issues of a number of time scales. also, a couple of open concerns on the frontiers of analysis are addressed by means of taking a differential-algebraic technique and lengthening it to the suggestion of brief saddle aspect problems.
