Simulation Tools for Flexible Multibody Systems
Dymore is a finite element based multibody dynamics code for the comprehensive modeling of flexible multibody systems. Dymore has been implemented in industrial settings, it is presently used by a number of rotorcraft, wind energy, and aerospace companies and research laboratories.
The following information concerning Dymore is available.
The input files needed to run Dymore are described in details in the user's manual.
Dymore uses freely available, cross-platform compilers, graphical user interface, and graphical packages only, see the installation notice.
A number of benchmark test cases are proposed for the validation of flexible multibody dynamics simulations. Each benchmark test case is described in details and predictions for various codes are available for comparison.
SectionBuilder is a finite element based tool for the analysis of cross-sections of beams of arbitrary configuration made of anisotropic materials. SectionBuilder is seamlessly integrated with Dymore to automate the analysis of geometrically exact beams within the framework of flexible multibody systems.
Dymore has been developed by Prof. Bauchau and his students.
