Workshop on

Multi-Body Dynamic Simulations (MBD/ MBS)

10th -11th May, 2010 @ Bangalore
14th -15th May, 2010 @ Pune

About the Course

Multi-body dynamic (MBD) system studies are important in automotive, aerospace, off-road machinery, earth moving equipment, railways, wind turbines, robotics, medical/ electronic
equipments and so on. Using state-of-the-art multi-body dynamics simulators, engineers are able to simulate the:

kinematics and dynamics,

load transfer mechanisms,
forces, displacements, velocities, and accelerations
acting on different machine elements
time domain/ frequency domain response
NVH and durability assessment

The Workshop will cover the following

Fundamentals of Multibody Dynamics and

The load spectra generated by the MBD simulation is often used

by finite element analysis for detailed stress analysis. Using the
co-simulation and code export facilities available in the MBD software tools, one can create a mechanical design model, conduct
the MBD simulation, and generate the control model for MATLAB /
SIMULINK using S-functions, which are generated by MBD simulators (such as SIMPACK).
Workshop will provide a unique opportunity to the participants to
learn about the latest developments in MBD, theoretical aspects of
MBD, case studies from various verticals, and practical aspects of
how to create a robust and reliable MBD model. Participants are
encouraged to discuss with to ProSIM experts how their MBD
models can be created / refined and seek solutions. For registration and more details contact Ms. Kusuma
