Hi Nishant,

GSoC is a great opportunity to develop high-quality code and get in touch
with the open-source community. About MBDyn, I haven't been in touch
anymore. My advice to you is to reach the community and ask for guidance.
It usually requires some entry test to work with any open-source groups,
but it is not a rule of thumb. For mbdyn you might have to do.

Here is some information regarding mbdyn-GSoC:

Also, there is some documentation on the link you just shared, but I advise
you to check in their website guides (
https://www.mbdyn.org/?Developers_corner). You might find better
instructions there. As you might note, I used Linux. I am not sure if you
can compile on windows. It might be a way as well with the right
requirements. Please, reach the community for their help. They would give
you better directions. I am cc'ing their community email.

Good luck on the journey,
