Abstract
The objective of this project is to build on the successful feasibility studies of Phase I to develop and to start commercialization of a new FE/MBS software that allows for the integration of computational geometry methods. This code will be designed to meet DOD and industry needs for the simulation of complex engineering and physics systems including vehicle system models with significant details and their interaction with the terrain. The software will allow for efficient modeling of rigid and flexible components; and will allow for the development of new nonlinear finite element meshes that have accurate geometry as well as many desirable features that can be exploited computationally. This new software technology will will allow for systematically modeling large deformations, the implementation of general constitutive models, and the development of new FE meshes with constant inertia and linear connectivity conditions.
