Taking a multibody system of the oil field pumping unit into a multibody elastic system, this paper analyzes its kinematics and dynamics by means of finite element method, deduces the kinematics and dynamics function after doing the element’s and global analysis, and puts forward the procedures of this method, i.e., (1) dividing the system into elements; (2) calculating for the elements; (3) calculating the matrix of external force; (4) piling the element stiffness and mass matrixes up; and (5) solving the function. As an example, this paper illustrates the process of analyzing the multibody system of a PUMPING UNIT used in an oil field.
