Viscous damper in mechanical rotational systems
The Rotational Damper block represents an ideal mechanical rotational viscous damper described with the following equations:
|T||Torque transmitted through the damper|
|D||Damping (viscous friction) coefficient|
|ω||Relative angular velocity|
|ωR, ωC||Absolute angular velocities of terminals R and C, respectively|
The block positive direction is from port R to port C. This means that the torque is positive if it acts in the direction from R to C.
Damping coefficient, defined by viscous friction. The default value is 0.001 N*m/(rad/s).
Use the Variables tab to set the priority and initial target values for the block variables prior to simulation. For more information, see Set Priority and Initial Target for Block Variables.
The block has the following ports:
