Digital Dynamics Lab

Team members

https://www.digitaldynamicslab.unipr.it/

The Digital Dynamics Lab focuses on the development of computer methods for mechanical problems. In this context, the lab puts forward research in the field of finite elements, multibody systems, particle methods, non-smooth dynamics.  
We collaborate with companies and other research centers to deliver ad-hoc software solutions for complex engineering problems, with applications in the field of aerospace, automation, robotics, vehicle dynamics, mechanisms and kinematics.
Our developments leverage last-generation technology such as artificial intelligence, GPU computing, immersive visualization and real-time simulation.
Thanks to our knowledge in the field of applied and theoretical mechanics, our software tools define the state of the art for problems involving complex challenges such as contacts, collisions or real-time constraints. Our code base amounts to more than half a million of lines of C++code.
