Mass-Spring-Damper system

Post by realjsk »

I have been trying to use CoppeliaSim to build a classical Mass-Spring-Damper system. For that, I have two rectangular slabs (cuboids), one on top of the other (the lower being static while the upper is dynamic). Between the two, I am supposed to insert a spring and a damper, but I do not know how to do that in CoppeliaSim. I think it may be possible to do it using a prismatic joint in Dependent mode, but I am not sure how to get that working. None of my Google searches were successful.

You should be able to set a joint mass/spring mode via the joint dynamics properties, where you can directly specify the spring constant K and the damping coefficient C.

I don't think that solution has the effect I want. I tried it with different spring constants, but the mass didn't exhibit any oscillations.

take a look at examples ...you will find spring -damper model
