Benchmark problems description

Benchmark test cases are available for different types of structural elements typically found in flexible multibody dynamics codes. Each benchmark problem is presented using a uniform template that presents the following data.

  1. An overall description of the problem.
  2. A detailed input file in html format. All input data is detailed in this file with direct access to the user's manual for easy interpretation of all input data.
  3. A complete input file containing all the input data in plain text format. This is the actual input file used to run Dymore 4.0.
  4. Detailed numerical results in plain text format.

These results can be imported in Octave for plotting and comparison with other predictions.

Numerical results from Dymore 4.0

Numerical predictions can be downloaded for each benchmark problem. In some cases, experimental measurements are also available. Numerical predictions and experimental measurements are collected in a downloadable zip file. Each archive (in .zip format) contains the following information.

  1. An Octave script for plotting (.m file),
  2. Data files or Octave scripts storing the experimental results (.m or .dat files, or both), and
  3. Existing numerical predictions (.dat files).
