MBD for ANSYS is a Solution for Multi-Body Dynamic Simulation within ANSYS Workbench Environment.

MBD for ANSYS offers powerful Multi-Body Dynamic (MBD) analysis capabilities within the ANSYS Workbench environment. This allows ANSYS users to simulate the motion and all the related physics of mechanical assemblies, enabling them to understand the behaviour of their assemblies up-front and to generate the loads needed for component-level FEA. MBD for ANSYS also serves as a bridge to advanced MBD capabilities, by allowing the user to export models to the standalone RecurDyn software. based CAE software offering state-of-the-art Multibody Dynamics capabilities with a unique integrated powerful non-linear Finite Element Method. It returns more precise dynamic motion results including stress analysis in one single simulation step. It also features flexible body contacts and non-linear deformations.
