Traditionally, the time integration algorithms for multibody dynamics are in sequential. The predictions of previous time steps are necessary to get the solutions at current time step. This time-marching character impedes the application of parallel processor implementation. In this paper, the idea of computing a number of time steps concurrently is applied to flexible multi-body dynamics, which makes parallel time-integration possible. In the present method, the solution at the current time step is computed before accurate values at previous time step are available. This method is suitable for small-scale parallel analysis of flexible multibody systems.
