Multi-Body Dynamics software Tightly integrated into ANSYS® Workbench™. MBD for ANSYS (Multi-Body Dynamics for ANSYS) is an add-on module for ANSYS that is used to simulate the transient behavior of a mechanical assembly in motion and is developed by FunctionBay, Inc.
Since Multi-Body Dynamics mainly utilizes rigid bodies, the calculation time is usually much shorter than the corresponding transient structural analysis using flexible bodies. Consequently it is an efficient approach to understand the overall dynamic behavior and generate boundary conditions for structural analysis.
Multi-Body Dynamics is mainly used for,
The calculation of loads (at joints, contacts and where forces are applied) that can be used for component-level structural analysis.
The study of the dynamic behavior of assembly of rigid or flexible bodies, usually including large translational/rotational displacement (motion).
