Multibody Dynamic System (MBD)

A multibody dynamic system (MBD) is a physical system composed of multiple interconnected bodies or objects that interact with each other through mechanical forces. These bodies can be rigid or flexible, and the system can be modeled as a set of interconnected bodies with a known topology and kinematics. MBD systems are commonly used in engineering applications, such as in the design and analysis of mechanical systems, robotics, and vehicle dynamics. The behavior of a MBD system is governed by the laws of physics, including Newton’s laws of motion and the conservation of energy and momentum. MBD simulations are used to predict the dynamic behavior of the system under different conditions and to optimize its design and performance.
