The theory of dynamics from Multibody Systems allows the kinematic and dynamic analysis of general mechanisms. The optimization of Systems Multicuerpo is an area that has stirred up great interest in the scientific community due to the complexity of the problem and those enormous numbers of applications of technological development that has the problems in force transmission and energy, design of mechanisms, machines and engines. However, it is a discipline in a nascent development stage despite the amount of resources who are implicated. There are numerous methodologies developed for particular applications but there are also some disadvantages for lack of suitable general methods for any formulation of the problem. This tool allows us to predict the kinematic and dynamic performance of the system in the earliest stages of design. It is also a useful tool for studying the influence of various design parameters on the performance of the system.
It designs a new computational model applicable to systems of six elements and one degree of freedom which are the basis of many of the machines and mechanisms that today are used extensively in industry.
• Creation and implementation of the necessary code to design an algorithm which determines the momentum of entry and reaction forces on the joints, using a dynamic analysis of the mechanism.
• Developing a program model comfortable and friendly to solve problems by dynamics of Systems Multicuerpo with six elements.
• The incorporation of this method will enable simultaneously control the parameters of position, kinematic and dynamic system from the earliest stages of design. This enables to take place in a significantly improved control over the performance of the system and gives a noticeable reduction of the design time.
