Accurate and robust models of a mechanism are required for the design and parameter optimization of control system algorithms, as well as their reliability verification. RecurDyn provides a diverse set of tools to ananlyze mechanism models coupled with the control system algorithm. RecurDyn provides an interface for the co-simulation with the Matlab / Simulink and AMESim software which are widely used in mechatronics. In addition RecurDyn supports FMI to incorporate the use of Modelica based applications. RecurDyn Colink allows for fast and accurate control system anaysis through the deep integration of the control simulation code with the RecurDyn´s dynamics solver.

  • Matlab / Simulink Interface
    • RecurDyn Control includes an interface which allows it to utilize a realistic dynamic model of RecurDyn in a Matlab / Simulink model.
    • It is possible to use a RecurDyn model including contacts or flexible bodies as well as farious joints and forces in the model created by Simulink.
    • A RecurDyn model can be integrated with a Simulink model using a UI which easily creates a S-Function for the RecurDyn model.
  • AMESim Hydraulic Interface
    • control-400x439.jpgRecurDyn Hydraulic includes an interface for the co-simulation with the AMESim hydraulic analysis software. This allows mechanical systems that contain a wide range of hydraulic systems to be analyzed.
    • The RecurDyn model which is included in not only various joints and forces but also contacts and flexible bodies in the model created by AMESim can be used.
    • AMESim supported Versions: ~ V 14.0
  • FMI (Functional Mockup Interface)
    • RecurDyn supports FMI, a standard interface based on Modelica and co-simulation with applications that support FMI.


  • Controls engineers can efficiently test control algorithms early in the design process with highly nonlinear dynamic models.
  • Mechanical systems may include control systems (whether electronic, hydraulic, etc.)
  • The mechanical engineer and the controls engineer can join their independent design models.
  • Controls engineers may struggle to develop robust controllers early in the design process. because of the difficulty in constructing nonlinear dynamic models within controls software.
  • These difficulties can be avoided by developing the mechanical model in RecurDyn and, using RecurDyn Control to interface with the controls software


  • All mechanical components and constraints are modeled with RecurDyn.
  • The control algorithms are modeled using the control application.
  • RecurDyn Control manages the co-simulation of RecurDyn and the control application.
  • Plant outputs are passed from RecurDyn to the control application at a constant sampling rate.
  • Control outputs are passed from the control application to RecurDyn at a constant sampling rate.
