Translational Spring

Linear 1D translational spring  Description The Translational Spring (or Spring) component models a linear 1-D translational spring connected between two flanges. Equations $f=c\left({s}_{\mathrm{rel}}-{s}_{\mathrm{rel0}}\right)=-{f}_{a}={f}_{b}$ ${s}_{\mathrm{rel}}={s}_{b}-{s}_{a}$ Variables

 Name Units Description Modelica ID $f$ $N$ Force between flanges (positive in direction of flange axis R) f ${f}_{x}$ $N$ Force applied to ${\mathrm{flange}}_{x},x\in \left\{a,b\right\}$ flange_x.f ${s}_{\mathrm{rel}}$ $m$ Relative distance between flanges s_rel ${s}_{x}$ $m$ Absolute position of ${\mathrm{flange}}_{x},x\in \left\{a,b\right\}$ flange_x.s Connections

 Name Description Modelica ID ${\mathrm{flange}}_{a}$ Left flange of compliant 1-dim. translational component flange_a ${\mathrm{flange}}_{b}$ Right flange of compliant 1-dim. translational component flange_b Parameters

 Name Default Units Description Modelica ID $c$ $1$ $\frac{N}{m}$ Spring constant c ${s}_{\mathrm{rel0}}$ $0$ $m$ Unstretched spring length s_rel0 Modelica Standard Library The component described in this topic is from the Modelica Standard Library.
