Overview

Explore how to model and simulate multibody dynamics using Simscape™ Multibody™. We show you how to define your multibody system using bodies, joints, constraints, and forces. You will be able to simulate multibody dynamics in systems such as robots, vehicle suspensions, construction equipment, and landing gear.  

Includes demonstrations and explanations on how to:

  • Define bodies parameterized with MATLAB® variables
  • Assemble the bodies with joints
  • Simulate multibody dynamics within Simulink®
  • Review a 3D animation of the simulation results

Simulation of multibody dynamics starts with the model you build. Simscape Multibody enables you to define modular mechanical components that can be easily reused in other systems. The MATLAB variables you use to set parameters for your model can be automatically tuned to meet design requirements, or tested throughout a given range to see their effect on system performance. Combining Simscape Multibody models with Simscape components and control systems modeled in Simulink makes it possible to simulate and analyze your entire system in a single simulation environment.

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.

Highlights

  • Define bodies parameterized with MATLAB® variables
  • Assemble the bodies with joints
  • Simulate multibody dynamics within Simulink®
  • Review a 3D animation of the simulation results
