simscape.multibody.JointForceLaw class

Package: simscape.multibody

Abstract base class to construct joint force laws

Description

The simscape.multibody.JointForceLaw is the abstract base class for joint force laws. The joint force laws describe the forces and torques that are applied to joint primitives. The forces and torques are functions of the dynamic state of joint primitives. To apply a force or torque to a joint primitive, use a subclass of the simscape.multibody.JointForceLaw class, such as simscape.multibody.AxialSpringDamper or simscape.multibody.TorsionalSpringDamper.
