chrono::ChLinkMotorLinearDriveline Class Reference

Description

This is an "interface" from 3D to a powertrain/powertrain that is modeled via 1D elements such as ChShaft, ChShaftsMotor, ChShaftsGearbox, ChShaftsClutch, etc.

This is the most avanced type of "linear motor" because using many of those 1D elements one can build very complex drivelines, for example use this ChLinkMotorLinearDriveline to represent a drive+reducer, where usually the drive moves a recirculating screw or a pulley or a rack-pinion. Hence this takes into account of the inertia of the motor shaft (as in many cases of robotic actuators, that has electric drives+reducers.) At the same time, using 1D elements avoids the unnecessary complication of using complete 3D parts to make screws, spindles, 3D rack-pinions, etc.

The 1D driveline is "interfaced" to the two connected threedimensional parts using two "inner" 1D shafts, each connected to 3D part translation; it is up to the user to build the driveline that connects those two shafts.

Most often the driveline is a graph starting at inner shaft 2 (consider it to be the truss for holding the motor drive, also the support for reducers if any) and ending at inner shaft 1 (consider it to be the output, i.e. the slow-moving slider).

Reimplemented from chrono::ChLinkMateGeneric.

◆ SetInnerShaft2RotDirection()

void chrono::ChLinkMotorLinearDriveline::SetInnerShaft2RotDirection ( ChVector<>  md)
inline

Set the direction of the inner rotation axis for body2, expressed in link coordinates Default is VECT_X, same dir of guide, i.e.

useful when anchoring drives with screw transmission.

◆ SetSystem()

virtual void chrono::ChLinkMotorLinearDriveline::SetSystem ( ChSystem m_system)
inlineoverridevirtual

Set the pointer to the parent ChSystem().

Also add to new collision system / remove from old collision system.

Reimplemented from chrono::ChPhysicsItem.

◆ VariablesFbIncrementMq()

void chrono::ChLinkMotorLinearDriveline::VariablesFbIncrementMq ( )
overridevirtual

Adds M*q (masses multiplied current 'qb') to Fb, ex.

if qb is initialized with v_old using VariablesQbLoadSpeed, this method can be used in timestepping schemes that do: M*v_new = M*v_old + forces*dt

Reimplemented from chrono::ChPhysicsItem.

◆ VariablesQbIncrementPosition()

void chrono::ChLinkMotorLinearDriveline::VariablesQbIncrementPosition ( double  step)
overridevirtual

Increment item positions by the 'qb' part of the ChVariables, multiplied by a 'step' factor.

pos+=qb*step If qb is a speed, this behaves like a single step of 1-st order numerical integration (Eulero integration).

Reimplemented from chrono::ChPhysicsItem.

◆ VariablesQbLoadSpeed()

void chrono::ChLinkMotorLinearDriveline::VariablesQbLoadSpeed ( )
overridevirtual

Initialize the 'qb' part of the ChVariables with the current value of speeds.

Note: since 'qb' is the unknown, this function seems unnecessary, unless used before VariablesFbIncrementMq()

Reimplemented from chrono::ChPhysicsItem.

◆ VariablesQbSetSpeed()

void chrono::ChLinkMotorLinearDriveline::VariablesQbSetSpeed ( double  step = 0)
overridevirtual

Fetches the item speed (ex.

linear and angular vel.in rigid bodies) from the 'qb' part of the ChVariables and sets it as the current item speed. If 'step' is not 0, also should compute the approximate acceleration of the item using backward differences, that is accel=(new_speed-old_speed)/step. Mostly used after the solver provided the solution in ChVariables.
