Aims and scope

This journal reports original contributions describing significant developments of different topics in multibody system dynamics through a single journal. Mathematical foundations, numerical procedures, experimental results, software development and applications of this field are of interest to the readers.

Multibody System Dynamics includes theoretical and computational methods in rigid and flexible multibody systems, their applications and experimental procedures used to validate the theoretical foundations. The research reported in this journal addresses the issues of new formulations, solution algorithms, computational efficiency, analytical and computational dynamics, 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 or system identification are also covered by the journal if the treated topic is related with multibody system dynamics.
