NOTES

  1. A curve sliding joint motion defines the location of the contact point between the two bodies involved in a curve sliding joint. As depicted in fig. 1, the location of the contact point is defined by the variable η along the curve of the curve sliding joint. The curve sliding joint motion is a holonomic constraint element that is associated with an edge, EdgeName. Find more information about: the representation of multibody systems, and the formulation of constraints in multibody systems.
  2. Figure 1. Configuration of a contact sliding joint.
  3. Optionally, a backlash model, BklModlName, can be specified for the curve sliding joint motion. The backlash model limits the range of values for the motion η.
  4. Optionally, a friction model, FctModlName, can be specified for the curve sliding joint motion. The friction model applies a friction force based on a friction law.
  5. It is possible to attach comments to the definition of the object; these comments have no effect on its definition.
