Member Function Documentation

◆ SetInputFromCheckpoint()

void chrono::vehicle::ChVehicleCosimTerrainNodeSCM::SetInputFromCheckpoint ( const std::string &  filename)

Initialize SCM terrain from the specified checkpoint file (which must exist in the output directory).

By default, a flat rectangular SCM terrain patch is used.

◆ SetPropertiesSCM()

void chrono::vehicle::ChVehicleCosimTerrainNodeSCM::SetPropertiesSCM ( double  spacing,
double  Bekker_Kphi,
double  Bekker_Kc,
double  Bekker_n,
double  Mohr_cohesion,
double  Mohr_friction,
double  Janosi_shear,
double  elastic_K,
double  damping_R 

Set the SCM material properties for terrain.

spacingSCM grid spacing
Bekker_KphiKphi, frictional modulus in Bekker model
Bekker_KcKc, cohesive modulus in Bekker model
Bekker_nn, exponent of sinkage in Bekker model (usually 0.6...1.8)
Mohr_cohesioncohesion [Pa], for shear failure
Mohr_frictionFriction angle [degrees], for shear failure
Janosi_shearshear parameter J [m], (usually a few mm or cm)
elastic_Kelastic stiffness K per unit area, [Pa/m] (must be larger than Kphi)
damping_Rvertical damping R per unit area [Pa.s/m] (proportional to vertical speed)

◆ SetProxyContactRadius()

void chrono::vehicle::ChVehicleCosimTerrainNodeSCM::SetProxyContactRadius ( double  radius)

Set sweeping sphere radius for proxy bodies (default 5e-3).

This value is used as a "thickness" for collision meshes (a non-zero value can improve robustness of the collision detection algorithm).
