The IUTAM Symposium on Optimization of Mechanical Systems brought together scientists from various disciplines within the field of optimization to contribute to the development of computer-aided methods for dynamic system design. The 46 papers collected here indicate the wide scope of engineering applications of optimization methods and show some of the fruits of using sensitivity analysis and optimization in the field of multibody dynamics. The volume should be of interest to scientists and engineers working in the fields of multibody dynamics and dynamic system design. Also interesting to specialists in optimization who would like to contribute methods for application in dynamic system design.
