Multibody Dynamics Workshop 2023
5th International Multibody System Dynamics Workshop & Summer School,
11-15 September 2023


Villa del Grumello


ANNOUNCEMENT.

The 2023 edition of the school will be held at the Lake Como School of Advanced Studies, at Villa del Grumello, on the Lake of Como, close to the city of Milano.

(Program, speakers and fees will be published later)
Aims and scope

Methods of multibody system dynamics represent a widespread, versatile and reliable approach to the simulation of engineering problems that involve the dynamics of complex mechanisms. Applications of these methods can be found in many fields, for instance in aerospace, automotive, biomechanics, robotics and automation, to name a few.

Partecipants to this workshop will have the opportunity to interact with people from a diverse range of backgrounds: other students, researchers, professionals from industries and faculty staff.

Lecturers are experts in their chosen fields and committed to teaching with academic rigour and contemporary relevance.

This Summer School is part of the curriculum of the PhD Programmes in Mechanical Engineering and Aerospace Engineering of Politecnico di Milano.
Jointly organized by
Politecnico di Milano         Università di Parma
Sponsors
AIDAA     Digital Dynamics Lab     Simulation Based Engineering Lab - Madison
ASME
Topics
Various topics related to multibody dynamics will be covered, including (but not limited to):
  • Basic theory
  • Dynamics and kinematics
  • Numerical methods for time integration
  • Flexible multibody and finite elements
  • Contacts, collisions, and non-smooth problems
  • Control, robotics, cosimulation
  • Optimization
  • Software development
Together with experts in the field, applications to various fields will be discussed:
  • aerospace
  • automotive
  • biomechanics
  • trains, railways
  • artificial intelligence and deep learning
  • virtual reality and videogames
  • robotics, etc.
Target
The workshop is mainly intended for Ph.D. students in engineering but it is open to industry researchers and enthusiasts.
A basic knowledge of mechanics, programming and numerical methods is expected. Previous editions created a stimulating international context, with students coming from many countries.
