HOTINT is an engineering software for physics based multibody dynamics analysis.
Its main focus lies on the correct mathematical modelling of complex flexible multibody systems and the efficient computation of those, rather than on a rich graphical output or to compete with high end
finite element solvers.
One specific aim of HOTINT is also to offer you smart ways for setting up your complex problems, e.g. mechanisms coupled with feedback controllers.
The extensive documentation and reference manual with approx. 200 pages shall help the user to quickly get into the functionality of the code.
Major parts of HOTINT have been presented in more than 100 international journal articles and conference proceedings.
