chrono::ChConstraintThree Class Referenceabstract

## Description

This class is inherited by the base ChConstraint(), which does almost nothing.

So here this class implements the functionality for a constraint between a THREE objects of type ChVariables(), and defines three constraint matrices, whose column number automatically matches the number of elements in variables vectors. Before starting the solver one must provide the proper values in constraints (and update them if necessary), i.e. must set at least the c_i and b_i values, and jacobians.
