Description

Template for an anti-roll subsystem using an RSD.

Base class for an anti-roll bar template modeled two arms connected with a revolute spring-damper. Derived from ChAntirollBar, but still and abstract base class.

The anti-roll bar subsystem is modeled with respect to a right-handed frame, with X pointing towards the front, Y to the left, and Z up (ISO standard). The subsystem reference frame is assumed to be always aligned with that of the vehicle. When attached to a chassis, only an offset is provided.

Member Function Documentation

void chrono::vehicle::ChAntirollBarRSD::Initialize ( std::shared_ptr< ChBodyAuxRef chassis,
const ChVector<> &  location,
std::shared_ptr< ChBody susp_body_left,

)
overridevirtual

The anti-roll bar subsystem is initialized by attaching it to the specified chassis body at the specified location (with respect to and expressed in the reference frame of the chassis).

It is assumed that the suspension reference frame is always aligned with the chassis reference frame. Finally, susp_body_left and susp_body_right are handles to the suspension bodies to which the anti-roll bar's droplinks are to be attached.

Parameters
[in]chassishandle to the chassis body
[in]locationlocation relative to the chassis frame
[in]susp_body_leftsusp body to which left droplink is connected
[in]susp_body_rightsusp body to which right droplink is connected

Implements chrono::vehicle::ChAntirollBar.
