chrono::vehicle::ChSprocketBand::ChSprocketBand ( const std::string &  name)
Parameters
[in]namename of the subsystem

Member Function Documentation

ChSystem::CustomCollisionCallback * chrono::vehicle::ChSprocketBand::GetCollisionCallback ( ChTrackAssembly track)
overridevirtual

Return the custom collision callback object.

Parameters
[in]trackpointer to containing track assembly

Implements chrono::vehicle::ChSprocket.

std::shared_ptr< geometry::ChLinePath > chrono::vehicle::ChSprocketBand::GetProfile ( )
overridevirtual

Return the 2D gear profile.

The gear profile, a ChLinePath geometric object, is made up of an arbitrary number of sub-paths of type ChLineArc or ChLineSegment sub-lines. These must be added in clockwise order, and the end of sub-path i must be coincident with beginning of sub-path i+1.

Implements chrono::vehicle::ChSprocket.

void chrono::vehicle::ChSprocketBand::Initialize ( std::shared_ptr< ChBodyAuxRef chassis,
const ChVector<> &  location,
ChTrackAssembly track 
)
overridevirtual

Initialize this sprocket subsystem.

The sprocket subsystem is initialized by attaching it to the specified chassis body at the specified location (with respect to and expressed in the reference frame of the chassis).

Parameters
[in]chassishandle to the chassis body
[in]locationlocation relative to the chassis frame
[in]trackpointer to containing track assembly

Reimplemented from chrono::vehicle::ChSprocket.
