We propose a numerical scheme for time-integration of nonholonomic mechanical systems, both conservative and non-conservative. The method is obtained by discretizing both the constraint equations and the Herglotz variational principle, which encodes the dynamics of the system. We validate the method by numerical simulations to contrast it against standard methods known in the literature.

Joint work with Elías Maciel (Polytechnic School - National University of Asunción) and Christian Schaerer (Polytechnic School - National University of Asunción).
