During this NAFEMS course, we'll discover how to build our first MBD models, and then how to increase realism, switching from rigid to flexible and then nonlinear flexible bodies, managing contact, tyres, gears in order to reach a realistic model capable to provide accurate load distribution along an entire MB system, but also focus on local stresses and strains and estimate fatigue life. Modern MBD software are now offering more and more capabilities dealing with multiphysics and nonlinear phenomenna. A convergence between classical nonlinear FEA and classical MBDS can be observed leading to new enhanced capabilities for realistic system simulation. Example related to driving dynamics or windturbine simulation will be described so to illustrate those capabilities.
