The transfer matrix method for multibody systems (MSTMM), namely the Rui method, is a rather novel approach for analyzing multibody system dynamics, which was firstly presented in 1993 and has been constantly developing in recent 25 years. For its features that it avoids the global dynamics equations of the system, keeps high computational speed, and allows highly formalized programming, this method has been widely used in science research as well as design of dynamics performance and experiments for various complex mechanical systems. This method has attracted wide attention and over 300 papers have been published by over 200 researchers from many countries. MSTMM has been widely applied in over fifty research directions in science research and key engineering applications including self-propelled artillery, shipborne gun, “metal storm”, antiaircraft gun, spin tube gun, vehicular MLRS, airborne MLRS, shipborne MLRS, cannon on helicopter, tank, vehicular missile system, fly-cutting machine tool, inertial measurement unit system, launch vehicle, missile, aerospace aircraft, submarine, underwater towed system, piezoelectric actuator, controlled flexible manipulators, intelligent flexible four-bar linkage devices, super long stay cable, earthquake resistant civil structures, immersed tunnel, robots, mobile concrete truck boom, vibration screen, vibration compaction, road roller, wind turbine, wind turbine tower, gas turbine, low pressure rotor of gas turbine, high pressure compressor of gas turbine, large-scale rotary machine, feeding platform, parachute-submissile, rocket projectile, truck cranes, floating bridge, wing, five-axis CNC machine tool, heavy duty machine tool, machine tool spindle, servo turret, high pressure gas well, diesel engine, roots blower with double rotor, ship's antivibration mounting system, ship pipeline, bearing-rotor, vehicle suspension, etc. In this report, the following aspects are systematically reviewed: history, basic principles, formulas, algorithm, automatic deduction theorem of overall transfer equation, visualized simulation and design software, comparison with other dynamics methods, highlights, tendency, and applications.

anish pastry, coffee and tea will be served 15 minutes before the seminar starts.

ll interested persons are invited.
