From 12 December - 15 December, 2021 the 10th ECCOMAS Thematic Conference on Multibody Dynamics was held at the University of Technology and Economics in Budapest, Hungary. Because of the pandemic situation in most European countries, the conference with its three plenary lectures and more than 140 contributed papers had to be organised in a pure online format with video presentations being followed by lively discussions in the virtual meeting rooms.
Our principal investigators Johannes Gerstmayr (University of Innsbruck), José Escalona (University of Seville), Olivier Brüls (University of Liège) and Joachim Linn (Fraunhofer ITWM) took care of three THREAD related sessions with 15 contributed papers including eight papers being presented by THREAD ESRs and four more papers being authored or co-authored by scientists from the network:
- Benjamin Bauer (Fraunhofer ITWM): A one-dimensional model for developable flexible elastic strips with isogeometric discretisation, co-authored by Michael Roller, Joachim Linn and Bernd Simeon,
- Muhannad Hawwash (Fraunhofer ITWM): Effective inelastic bending behavior of multi-wire cables using Finite Elements accounting for wire contact, co-authored by Vanessa Dörlich, Joachim Linn, Ralf Müller and Roger Keller,
- Denise Tumiotto (Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg): Stability of coarse grid discretisations for dissipative systems: numerical experiments for a test problem, co-authored by Martin Arnold,
