Circle to Finite Line Contact Force (2D)
This block implements a 2D contact force between a circle and a finite line. The force is active above and below the line.
This is part of the Simscape Multibody Contact Forces Library
Frame connected to LinB port:
- Located at midpoint of line.
- X-axis is normal to the finite line.
- Y-axis is along the finite line.
Frame connected to the CirF port:
- Z-axis aligned with frame attached to LinB port.
Output signal is a bus with intermediate calculations and total force.
