The present paper describes the applicability of inverse design equations in conjunction with dynamic finite element analysis and design sensitivity features for multi-body dynamics. Whereas in Part 1 (Theory) of this paper we describe the general methodology with emphasis on an inverse design philosophy, Part 2 (Applications) presented here describes the integration of the total design process. Numerical examples are presented to validate the present developments for the design of multi-body systems.
