Multibody & Advanced Simulation Team

Within the Mechanisms Section, the MAST (Multibody & Advanced Simulation Team) has developed a recognized background & know-how to perform in-house complex and advanced simulations in

  • Multibody dynamics
  • Electromagnetics
  • Component analysis and telemetry & test data analysis

International Berthing and Docking Mechanism (IBDM) simulation

Based on the latest improvements in software and technical experience, the modelling and simulation approach enhances the design and verification process of aerospace mechanisms.

This refers to several aspects such as:

  • Anticipate and understand hardware performance
  • Identify criticalities of key design parameters by means of parametric/sensitivity analyses
  • Optimize the hardware design
  • Correlate and interpret the H/W performance by model-assisted approach
  • Diagnose any potential anomaly
