RecurDyn Multibody Dynamics Simulation

Download Brochure Brochure in PDF format

RecurDyn is Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) software that is focused on Multibody Dynamics (MBD), while offering multiphysics solutions. The technology behind RecurDyn has superior calculation efficiency because it is based on recursive formulation. Because of this, RecurDyn gives the best performance in large-scale multibody problems (systems with a large number of bodies), including mechanical systems that experience a lot of contact.

Along with the powerful solver, RecurDyn features a natural Windows-based User Interface which is intuitive and easy to use, as well as a custom application development environment which enables users to automate complicated and/or tedious tasks.

RecurDyn features Interdisciplinary modules which allow you to:
  • Model flexible bodies within your system using Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
  • Design control systems to interact with your mechanical models


RecurDyn has Communicator modules which allow it to interface with other softwares. This allows:
  • Cosimulation with control systems in Matlab/Simulink
  • Importing/exporting geometry from various Computer Aided Design (CAD) systems


RecurDyn features Toolkits which are optimized for various applications across many industries. These include:
  • Media transport systems
  • Systems with chains, belts, and gears
  • Tracked vehicles such as construction and agricultural equipment, as well as military vehicles.
Explore the capabilites of RecurDyn to discover how the value of having a true virtual prototype can be realized.

Sample RecurDyn applications

"...As a further validation of the dynamic computer model, RecurDyn software, from Function Bay, Inc., was used to perform the same simulation (as ADAMS)...The new solver (RecurDyn) ran in about one third of the time (as ADAMS) for nearly identical results."
