A review of recent developments in multibody dynamics modeling and analysis is presented. Multibody dynamics is one of the fastest growing fields of applied mechanics. Multibody systems are increasingly being employed as models of physical systems such as robots, mechanisms, chains, cables, space structures, and biodynamic systems. Research activity in multibody dynamics has stimulated research in a number of subfields including formulation methods, system modeling, numerical procedures, and graphical representations. These are also discussed and reviewed.
