SimulationX - Multi-Body Systems

Learn about MBS (Multi-Body System) mechanics, understand the library, and practically apply the modeling concept with examples.

In this training course, participants will learn how to build an MBS model within SimulationX, including the demonstration of basic elements such as rigid bodies, joints, and forces. The proper definition of initial positions is explained. The focus of this training is the correct handling of closed kinematic loops in SimulationX. During the training, numerous practical examples are used for explanation.
