Applying Displacement Constraint

Applying Displacement Constraint

Applying Displacement Constraint

(OP)
I'm having difficulty in defining a displacement/velocity constraint on a part. I want this particular part to be stationary from time = 0 to time =.005 seconds; then, the part would rotate and move axially based on a certain spring force. Can anyone please give me suggestions?

RE: Applying Displacement Constraint

Fit a fixed joint. At t=0.005 deactivate the joint.

Cheers

Hi Greg,
Thanks for your valuable advice. I don't know how to deactivate a fixed joint after a certain time interval. If you could give me more details on this, that will be very much appreciated.

RE: Applying Displacement Constraint

Well, I'm sure the help files will help. I don't have ADAMS on this computer. I think the command is DEACTIVATE

Cheers

Simulation is an increasingly valuable tool across the product design workflow, but not all simulations are equal. We set out to determine how engineers and product designers make use of specialized analyses, how they incorporate nonlinear simulation into their work and how they rate the available software.

White Paper – Data Security and Know-How Protection
Our data is constantly exposed to the danger of being intercepted or stolen as it wends its way over global data networks. Data security measures and measures for protecting intellectual property should not, however, first be implemented when data is exchanged – companies must lay the foundation for these measures within their own organization.
