Viscous damper in mechanical translational systems
The Translational Damper block represents an ideal mechanical translational viscous damper, described with the following equations:
|F||Force transmitted through the damper|
|D||Damping (viscous friction) coefficient|
|vR,vC||Absolute velocities of terminals R and C, respectively|
The block positive direction is from port R to port C. This means that the force is positive if it acts in the direction from R to C.
Damping coefficient, defined by viscous friction. The default value is 100 N/(m/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:
