Simple Mechanical System

This example shows a model of a system that connects rotational and translational motion. A summing lever drives a load consisting of a mass, viscous friction, and a spring connected to its joint C. Joint B is suspended on two rotational springs connected to reference point through a wheel and axle and a gear box. Joint A is connected to a torque source through a gear box and a wheel and axle mechanism.
