This is a review of multibody dynamics research reported in the technical literature since 1990. It is an update of an earlier review appearing in 1991. In the five to six years since the writing of that first review, it is found that the literature has greatly expanded, attesting to a major increase in research efforts, with the greatest increase occurring in flexible and constrained multibody dynamics. In this review, the state-of-the-art of the research is briefly outlined and a discussion about unresolved issues and research opportunities is presented.
