The ECCOMAS Thematic Conference Multibody Dynamics 2005 was held in Madrid from the 21st to the 24th of June, representing the second edition of a series which began in Lisbon 2003. The conference was held under the a- picesoftheEuropeanCommunityonComputationalMethodsinAppliedSciences ECCOMAS(www.eccomas.org). Thisconferenceprovidedaforumfordiscussion of several topics, through the participation of 161 researchers from 29 countries, mostlyEuropeansbutalsofromAfrica,AmericaandAsia. This book contains the revised and extended versions of selected conference communications,representingthestate-of-the-artintheadvancesoncomputational multibody models, from the most abstract mathematical developmentsto practical engineering applications. We feel that this book will be highly valuable for those experiencedresearchersthatwanttokeepupdatedonthedetailsofthelatestdriving ideas in this ?eld, but also to researchers approaching the ?eld for the ?rst time, sinceitprovidesausefuloverviewofthemostactiveareasandtheeffortsdevoted bymanyprominentresearchgroupsworldwide.
