The journal Multibody System Dynamics treats theoretical and computational methods in rigid and flexible multibody systems, their application, and the experimental procedures used to validate the theoretical foundations.

The research reported addresses computational and experimental aspects of multibody dynamics and their application to classical and emerging fields in science and technology. Both development and application aspects of multibody dynamics are relevant, in particular in the fields of control, optimization, real-time simulation, parallel computation, workspace and path planning, reliability, and durability. The journal also publishes articles covering application fields such as vehicle dynamics, aerospace technology, robotics and mechatronics, soil models, machine dynamics, crashworthiness, biomechanics, data based methods, games, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and system identification if they involve or contribute to the field of Multibody System Dynamics.
