Ideal spring in mechanical rotational systems
The Rotational Spring block represents an ideal mechanical rotational linear spring, described with the following equations:
|T||Torque transmitted through the spring|
|φ||Relative displacement angle (spring deformation)|
|φinit||Spring preliminary winding (spring offset)|
|φR, φC||Absolute angular displacements of terminals R and C, respectively|
|ω||Relative angular velocity|
The block positive direction is from port R to port C. This means that the torque is positive if it acts in the direction from R to C.
Use the Variables tab to set the priority and initial target values for the block variables prior to simulation. For more information, see Set Priority and Initial Target for Block Variables.
The block has the following ports:
