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.

The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product\'s capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
