How are you using Multibody Dynamics simulation today?

By Patrick Farrell

NAFEMS Multibody Dynamics Survey


Do you perform multibody dynamics (MBD) simulation, otherwise known as motion simulation, on machines, vehicles or other types of mechanisms? If so, the NAFEMS Multibody Dynamics Working Group would like to hear from you. NAFEMS is conducting a survey on the Current Trends in the Usage of Multibody Dynamics Software, and as a proud member of NAFEMS, Siemens Digital Industries Software is helping to get the word out about this survey.

Results from the survey will be used by the NAFEMS Multibody Dynamics Working Group to help prioritize their activities. After the survey concludes, NAFEMS will publish a summary of the responses and NAFEMS will distribute an overview of the results to everyone who supports this initiative by completing the survey.

Finally, the NAFEMS Multibody Dynamics Working Group announced the launch of the new NAFEMS Multibody Dynamics Community. The MBD Community will be the central point for the exchange of ideas, information and networking for everyone interested or involved in MBD. So whether if you are a user of Simcenter 3D Motion or some other multibody dynamics simulation tool, we highly urge you to join the NAFEMS Multibody Dynamics Community today.
