An open source multibody dynamics simulation program

HOTINT is a free and open source simulation software for physics based flexible multibody system dynamics. It allows the modelling of complex mechatronic and multibody systems. It’s features include dynamic and static computation, eigenmode calculation, elements for rotordynamics, IOBlocks for building controllers, beams suitable of large deformations, parameter variation and optimization. The HOTINT can be downloaded as Windows compiled executable

New HOTINT version supporting X2C

The new version of the mechatronic simulation program HOTINT supports the coupling with controllers created with X2C. X2C is a free and open source tool for the model-based development and code generation of real time control algorithms for micro processor units. X2C uses the open source environment Scilab/Xcos building the graphical control model. With Scilab/Xcos,
