In the last simulation blog article the benefits of flexible body dynamics simulation were introduced.

These are all linear modes used to represent any state of a component by a linear superposition sum.  But what if your component doesn’t behave linearly?

What if it is a rubber bushing with different stiffness in tension, shear and compression? Superposition of linear modes is no longer an accurate representation.
