Dynamic Behavior of a Spring Loaded Rotating Slider

Application ID: 14019


This model illustrates the modeling of slider motion caused by a base rotation. The motion of the slider is analyzed under various forces such as inertia force, centrifugal force, spring force and damping force.

The prismatic joint, which is used to connect the two components, is spring loaded and also includes damping effects.

The motion of the slider is compared with the analytical solution, which is also computed simultaneously using an ODE.
