Several time steppers are available within chrono physics engine:
- Euler explicit
- Euler implicit
- Euler implicit linearized
- Runge-Kutta 45
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.
