Robotran basics

Multibody system (MBS) dynamics studies the motion of mechanical systems composed of several rigid or flexible bodies interconnected by joints and submitted to internal or external forces and torques. Those forces can result from both passive elements such as springs, or active components such as electromechanical actuators.

In order to draw full benefit of Robotran, it is strongly recommended to read the following document :

 

PyRobotran documentation

Multibody simulations with Robotran can be performed in a full Python environment. For the simulation, open source packages numpy and scipy are used which makes possible to build complete models using free software. Every users are encouraged to test those new functionalities.

Follow this link for accessing the PyRobotran documentation generated with sphinx.

 

MBsysLab documentation

The modelling and analysis of multibody systems can be fully achieved in the Matlab environment. It allows to prototype a model in a very short time by leveraging Matlab environments and toolboxes (easy programming and debug). The Matlab modules for Robotran are called MBSysLab.

More details on the MBsysLab modules and data structure are available by following this link.

MBsysC documentation

The modelling and analysis of multibody systems can be fully achieved in the C/C++ environment. It allows to run faster computations,  coupling with other fields, integration with Simulink as well as simulation with real-time 3D vizualiation.

More details on the MBsysC modules and data structure are available by following this link.
