How to chech if a multibody model is correct

  1. Oct 8, 2012 #1
    Hi all,

    I have just created a multibody model of a mechanism. Since it's a bit complex to perform hand calculation, what should I do to check if it's correct?

    Do the hand calculation anyway? Or do a hand calculation of a smaller simplified version of it?

    Ja, you're on right, I think i should be able to simplify the system, maybe through linearization and so on. Thanks!
