Member Function Documentation

◆ Advance()

void chrono::vehicle::ChVehicleCosimTrackedMBSNode::Advance ( double  step_size)

Advance simulation.

This function is called after a synchronization to allow the node to advance its state by the specified time step. A node is allowed to take as many internal integration steps as required, but no inter-node communication should occur.

Implements chrono::vehicle::ChVehicleCosimBaseNode.

◆ GetChassisBody()

virtual std::shared_ptr<ChBody> chrono::vehicle::ChVehicleCosimTrackedMBSNode::GetChassisBody ( ) const
protectedpure virtual

Get the "chassis" body.

Only used is a drawbar-pull rig is attached.

◆ Initialize()

void chrono::vehicle::ChVehicleCosimTrackedMBSNode::Initialize ( )

Initialize this node.

This function allows the node to initialize itself and, optionally, perform an initial data exchange with any other node.

Reimplemented from chrono::vehicle::ChVehicleCosimBaseNode.

◆ InitializeMBS()

virtual void chrono::vehicle::ChVehicleCosimTrackedMBSNode::InitializeMBS ( const ChVector2<> &  terrain_size,
double  terrain_height 
protectedpure virtual

Initialize the underlying MBS.

terrain_sizeterrain length x width
terrain_heightinitial terrain height

◆ OnInitializeDBPRig()

virtual void chrono::vehicle::ChVehicleCosimTrackedMBSNode::OnInitializeDBPRig ( std::shared_ptr< ChFunction func)
protectedpure virtual

Impose sprocket angular speed function.

This function is called (during initialization, after the call to InitializeMBS) only if a drawbar-pull rig is attached. A derived class must enforce the specified angular speed on all sprockets and, if appropriate, disconnect any other power transmission mechanism (such as a powertrain/driveline).

◆ OnOutputData()

virtual void chrono::vehicle::ChVehicleCosimTrackedMBSNode::OnOutputData ( int  frame)

Perform additional output at the specified frame (called from within OutputData).

For example, output mechanism-specific data for post-procesing.

◆ PostAdvance()

virtual void chrono::vehicle::ChVehicleCosimTrackedMBSNode::PostAdvance ( )

Perform any required operations after advancing the state of the MBS.

This function is called after every integration step.

◆ PreAdvance()

virtual void chrono::vehicle::ChVehicleCosimTrackedMBSNode::PreAdvance ( )

Perform any required operations before advancing the state of the MBS.

This function is called before every integration step.

◆ SetIntegratorType()

void chrono::vehicle::ChVehicleCosimTrackedMBSNode::SetIntegratorType ( ChTimestepper::Type  int_type,
ChSolver::Type  slv_type 

Set integrator and solver types.

For the MKL solver, use slv_type = ChSolver::Type::CUSTOM.

int_typeintegrator type (default: HHT)
slv_typesolver type (default:: MKL)

◆ Synchronize()

void chrono::vehicle::ChVehicleCosimTrackedMBSNode::Synchronize ( int  step_number,
double  time 

Synchronize this node.

This function is called at every co-simulation synchronization time to allow the node to exchange information with any other node.

Implements chrono::vehicle::ChVehicleCosimBaseNode.
