Formulations and Applications of Structural and Multibody Dynamics


This special track is dedicated to the accurate and efficient analysis of structures, machines, and mechanisms under dynamic conditions. Submissions are welcome in the areas of structural and rigid/flexible multibody dynamics, including theoretical and computational aspects as well as their application and validation. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: formulations and algorithms for rigid and flexible multibody system dynamics; dynamics of solids and slender structures undergoing large deformations; nonlinear dynamics; experimental dynamics; contact and impact mechanics; vibration analysis; model order reduction; machine learning; software implementation; sensitivity analysis, design optimization, and control; real-time digital twins of mechanical systems, industrial and biomechanical applications.
