Educators Lead with Multi-body Dynamics and SolidWorks Simulation

URoma Tor Vergata FSAE Team

University of Roma Tor Vergata is well known for their Formula Student Team.

URoma Tor Vergata Formula Student Italy Championship Cup

The championship cup from Formula Student Italy is proudly displayed in a glass case.

Supporting these students are innovative engineering professors that have created instruction for Multi-Body Dynamics combined with SolidWorks Simulation and SolidWorks Motion.  I got to talk to

Professor Ettore Pennestrì about new teaching methodologies.


In response to industry demands using SolidWorks, students must not only understand theory and create a 3D CAD model, but also be able to apply Newton-Euler methods, Kinematics and Mathematical modeling to test the design under simulated working conditions.

Professor Pennestrì and his colleagues, share this research paper with the SolidWorks community.  multibody-dynamics-in-education

At a school that celebrates great scientists and engineers of the past, University of Roma Tor Vergata also steps boldly into the future.

Thank you to Tor Vergata professors and students for sharing with the SolidWorks community.  Marie
