Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ ChTrackShoe()

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

Member Function Documentation

◆ Connect()

virtual void chrono::vehicle::ChTrackShoe::Connect ( std::shared_ptr< ChTrackShoe next,
ChTrackAssembly assembly,
bool  ccw 
)
protectedpure virtual

Connect this track shoe to the specified neighbor.

This function must be called only after all track shoes have been initialized.

Parameters
[in]nexthandle to the neighbor track shoe
[in]assemblycontaining track assembly
[in]ccwtrack assembled in counter clockwise direction

◆ GetLateralContactPoint()

virtual ChVector chrono::vehicle::ChTrackShoe::GetLateralContactPoint ( ) const
pure virtual

Return the location for lateral contact with the sprocket, expressed in the shoe reference frame.

This point, which must be in the median plane of the track shoe, is used to enforce lateral contact with the sprocket as a detracking prevention mechanism. For track shoes with a central guiding pin, this can be the center of the guiding pin collision shape.

Implemented in chrono::vehicle::ChTrackShoeBand, chrono::vehicle::TrackShoeDoublePin, chrono::vehicle::m113::M113_TrackShoeSinglePin, chrono::vehicle::TrackShoeSinglePin, and chrono::vehicle::m113::M113_TrackShoeDoublePin.

◆ GetPitch()

virtual double chrono::vehicle::ChTrackShoe::GetPitch ( ) const
pure virtual

Return the pitch length of the track shoe.

This quantity must agree with the pitch of the sprocket gear.

Implemented in chrono::vehicle::ChTrackShoeBand, chrono::vehicle::m113::M113_TrackShoeSinglePin, chrono::vehicle::ChTrackShoeDoublePin, and chrono::vehicle::TrackShoeSinglePin.

◆ GetType()

virtual GuidePinType chrono::vehicle::ChTrackShoe::GetType ( ) const
pure virtual

Return the type of track shoe (guiding pin).

A derived class must specify the type of track shoe (which must be consistent with the idler and road wheels in the containing track assembly.

Implemented in chrono::vehicle::m113::M113_TrackShoeBandANCF, chrono::vehicle::m113::M113_TrackShoeBandBushing, chrono::vehicle::m113::M113_TrackShoeDoublePin, chrono::vehicle::m113::M113_TrackShoeSinglePin, chrono::vehicle::TrackShoeBandANCF, chrono::vehicle::TrackShoeBandBushing, chrono::vehicle::TrackShoeDoublePin, and chrono::vehicle::TrackShoeSinglePin.

◆ Initialize()

virtual void chrono::vehicle::ChTrackShoe::Initialize ( std::shared_ptr< ChBodyAuxRef chassis,
const ChVector<> &  location,
const ChQuaternion<> &  rotation 
)
pure virtual

Initialize this track shoe subsystem.

The track shoe is created within the specified system and initialized at the specified location and orientation (expressed in the global frame). All actual work is deferred to derived classes (subsystem templates) which must create the bodies, joints, etc. In addition, a derived class must set the track shoe body's identifier to BodyID::SHOES.

Parameters
[in]chassishandle to the chassis body
[in]locationlocation relative to the chassis frame
[in]rotationorientation relative to the chassis frame

Implemented in chrono::vehicle::ChTrackShoeBandANCF, chrono::vehicle::ChTrackShoeBand, chrono::vehicle::ChTrackShoeDoublePin, chrono::vehicle::ChTrackShoeSinglePin, and chrono::vehicle::ChTrackShoeBandBushing.
