Researchers have investigated modeling and computation of constrained dynamical systems, but scientists and engineers sometimes overlook consistent matching of mathematical modeling and numerical methods. The authors use multibody system software to study off-highway vehicles, automobile and android crash simulation, and planetary ephemerides.
