From the series: MATLAB and Simulink Robotics Arena
Sebastian Castro, MathWorks
Ed Marquez Brunal, MathWorks
Join Sebastian Castro and Ed Marquez Brunal as they discuss approaches for modeling and simulation of mechanical contact using Simulink® and Simscape™. Contact modeling can help you build detailed simulations for design and analysis of mechanical systems.
In the second part of this series, Sebastian and Ed present the general workflow for modeling mechanical contact in Simulink block diagrams. You will explore the following examples, which describe contact modeling approaches with different products and levels of detail:
You can find the example models used in this video on MATLAB Central File Exchange. In addition, you can access the following resources for more information:
