I have kind of the same problem DynamicEng has. I try to do spline tutorial example but it doesnt work.I think there is something wrong with this part. Read these lines that are qouted from tutorial:
"1.Create the spline using the spline editor or the general method.(it does not specify a name for spline)
2 Build a simple nonlinear spring-damper, and then modify it to use the spline. To use the spline in the spring-damper definition, under Stiffness and Damping in the
Spring-Damper Modify dialog box, change the stiffness coefficient to Spline: F=f(defo). ADAMS/View builds a function expression for you, using AKISPL and
modeled spring length as free length."
When I type Spline: F=f(defo) in K window it gives error. This error seems reasonable. How should the program understand this f(defo) is the same spline defined before?we can not set f=f(variable) with 2 different units in splines.Does anybody know what I should do?
