Massive Parallelization of Multibody System Simulation

Michael Valášek, Ladislav Mráz


This paper deals with the decrease in CPU time necessary for simulating multibody systems by massive parallelization. The direct dynamics of multibody systems has to be solved by a system of linear algebraic equations. This is a bottleneck for the efficient usage of multiple processors. Simultaneous solution of this task means that the excitation is immediately spread into all components of the multibody system. The bottleneck can be avoided by introducing additional dynamics, and this leads to the possibility of massive parallelization. Two approaches are described. One is a heterogeneousmultiscale method, and the other involves solving a system of linear algebraic equations by artificial dynamics.
