Multibody dynamics is the science of studying the motion of complex mechanical systems under the application of mechanical forces.

Multibody Dynamics (MBD) simulation software allows engineers to study and investigate the mechanical and mechatronic systems’ kinematic and dynamic motion, enabling them to generate and solve virtual 3D models to predict and visualize motion, coupling forces and stresses.

Study systems from beginning to end — Multibody dynamics is used throughout the design cycle from initial concept to final detailed design.

With multibody dynamics simulation, engineers can:

  • make informed decisions for quick design changes and study sub- and complete systems
  • reduce the number of prototypes
  • avoid costly last-minute changes
  • speed up time to market

Thanks to its high-end technology, the SIMULIA multibody dynamics product line which inherits Simpack technology developed for more than 40 years, powers all of the SIMULIA applications and is available on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
