Multibody Simulation

Simpack – Leading MBS Technology for Technology Leaders

Simpack is a general multibody simulation (MBS) software enabling analysts and engineers to simulate the non-linear motion of any mechanical or mechatronic system. It enables engineers to generate and solve virtual 3D models in order to predict and visualize motion, coupling forces and stresses.

Simpack simulation software is particularly well-suited to high frequency transient analyses, even into the acoustic range. Simpack was primarily developed to handle complex non-linear models with flexible bodies and harsh shock contact.

From initial concept designs, through to production and redesigns, Simpack is used to help engineers fully comprehend and optimize systems, vastly reduce the need for physical prototyping, reduce time-to-market and improve product quality and lifespan. In essence Simpack enables manufacturers to gain a competitive edge by offering the ability to create high quality products in a time and materially efficient manner thus reducing overall costs in design, production and maintenance.

Diversity and good connectivity to various multi-physics software (e.g. control, hydraulics and FEA) enable Simpack to be easily integrated into any manufacturer’s already-established development processes.

Simpack consists of different modules for specific applications enabling users to simulate multibody system behaviour in nearly every mechanical industrial sector. The modules are:

All Simpack features are 100% compatible. Therefore, new software developments for one particular engineering field benefit all Simpack users regardless of the application area.

As part of the SIMULIA Brand, Simpack is the strategic MBS component of the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE portfolio. This enables users to:

  • Leverage Simpack solver technology to simulate multibody performance directly in a browser-based design environment
  • Validate the kinematic and dynamic motion behavior of any mechanism early in the design process without having to build a physical prototype
