RecurDyn is an interdisciplinary, computer-aided engineering (CAE) software package whose primary function is the simulation of Multi-Body Dynamics (MBD).
RecurDyn simulates both rigid and flexible body dynamics by combining traditional rigid MBD with cutting-edge finite element technology for modeling flexible bodies.(MFBD: Multi Flexible Body Dynamics) In addition, RecurDyn also includes a tightly-integrated controller design tool, design optimization, particle dynamics for granular materials, and durability and fatigue analysis. RecurDyn also supports co-simulation with various other CAE software tools.
RecurDyn includes a seamless co-simulation environment (Particleworks Interface) for coupled simulations with computational fluid dynamics solver, Particleworks from Prometech, allowing for detailed analysis of the interaction of fluids and multi-body systems.
RecurDyn employs world-leading technologies in both its solver to provide superior calculation speed and robust performance and in its GUI to provide an extremely powerful yet intuitive, easy-to-use environment for full pre- and post-processing. The GUI includes extensive customization tools to allow users to simplify and automate RecurDyn, and couple RecurDyn with their own workflow methods.
RecurDyn includes a large selection of toolkits to add functionality specific to various fields of engineering, such as paper handling, gears, tracked vehicles, and more. The base component of RecurDyn is RecurDyn/Professional, which includes the GUI, the solver, and ProcessNet, a powerful and complete customization environment. RecurDyn/Professional is required to use any additional toolkits.
