Time steppers

Several time steppers are available within chrono physics engine:

  • Euler explicit
  • Euler implicit
  • Euler implicit linearized
  • Runge-Kutta 45
  • Trapezoidal
  • Newmark
  • HHT

Some of these time steppers are dedicated to smooth dynamics: for classical multibody dynamics with rigid and flexible bodies connected through links, finite element analysis or fluid solid interaction problems.

Others are more efficient for non-smooth dynamics : ie with friction and contact between bodies.

For more information on these time steppers, please refer to this page.
