Multibody System Dynamics provides a unique single vehicle for reporting significant developments in all areas of multibody system dynamics. The journal explores theoretical and computational methods in rigid and flexible multibody systems, their applications, and experimental procedures used to validate the theoretical foundations.

The journal’s research papers address the issues of new formulations, solution algorithms, computational efficiency, analytical and computational kinematics, synthesis, flexibility effects, control, optimization, real-time simulation, parallel computations, workspace and path planning, reliability, and durability. Fields such as vehicle dynamics, aerospace technology, robotics and mechatronics, machine dynamics, crashworthiness, biomechanics, computer graphics, and system identification are also examined when the topic is relevant to multibody system dynamics.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
