The scope of the colloquium covers new developments in multibody system (MBS) dynamics: advanced methods of generation and solving equations of motion; new approaches in simulation of hybrid flexible/rigid MBS (comparison of absolute and relative coordinate formulations), electromechanical and mechatronic systems (multiphysics and co-simulation approaches); algorithms for parallel computations and their implementations; recent applications to engineering systems (rail and road vehicles etc.), wheel and walking robots, biomechanical motions of animals and humans; mathematical models of force interactions (contact, tyre, fast algorithms); efficiency of multibody dynamics software.
