Symbolic Computer Language for Multibody Systems

  title={Symbolic Computer Language for Multibody Systems},
  author={Michael W. Sayers},
Methods are developed for describing and manipulating symbolic data objects that are useful for analyzing the kinematics and dynamics of multibody systems. These symbolic objects include 1) vector/dyadic algebraic expressions, 2) physical components in a multibody system, and 3) program structures needed in a numerical simulation code. A computer algebra language based on these methods encourages the automation of multibody analyses that are versatile and simple because much of the work… CONTINUE READING
