Sphere to Plane Contact Force (3D)
This block implements a contact force between a sphere and a plane. The force is active above and below the plane.
This is part of the Simscape Multibody Contact Forces Library
Frame connected to PlaB port:
- Located at midpoint of plane (x, y, and z).
- Z-axis is normal to the surfaces where force is active.
Frame connected to the SphF port:
- Located at center of sphere.
- Orientation does not matter.
Output signal is a bus with intermediate calculations and total force.
