Spring and Collar MapleSim Model - Spring and Collar S-Function - MapleSim Model Gallery

Spring and Collar

This model simulates a collar rotating about a circular rod due to the force from a spring. The spring is attached to the collar and fixed to a point on the ground. The model will calculate the amount of work performed by the spring on the collar and display the result. The work of the system can be analyzed to better visualize the influence of work and force on a body.
