Release 2019_05

What’s new?

– a complete redesign of the *.fdd and *.fds file (old files will not work in the current release)
– a generic force and torque element (the user can write mathematical expressions for the Magnitude)
– for a time-motion the user can not only use splines but also mathematical expressions
– data objects, like splines and parameters, can be created and used in the current release

What is FreeDyn?

FreeDyn is a free simulation software designed for solving challenging scientific and industrial problems in multibody dynamics with systems consisting of flexible bodies. It serves as an easy-to-use software tool for modeling mechanical systems including rigid as well as flexible bodies connected by joints and constraints. The geometry can either be imported from a CAD system or designed in FreeDyn from scratch. FreeDyn solves the equations for dynamic simulations and offers an advanced visualization of solutions by graphs, plots and animations.

Possible Cooperations:

– Multibody Dynamic Simulations
– Customization of FreeDyn
– Parameter Identification and Optimal Control Problems of Mechatronic Systems
– Solutions to Very Specific Problems of Mechatronic Systems

Why choosing a multibody tool?

A large amount of the CPU costs in the simulation of a multibody system is appropriated for effects like contact, friction or nonlinear elasticity. However, a combination of multibody system modeling and finite element software which accounts also for all these nonlinear effects is a powerful tool for all product milestones, like design, testing, prototyping and final developing for all kinds of machines and tools.
