Two Bodies - Between Two Bodies
How you want the force oriented. You can select:
Normal to Grid- Lets you orient the force normal to the current working grid, if it is displayed, or normal to the screen.
Pick Feature- Lets you orient the force along a direction vector on a feature in your model, such as along an edge or normal to the face of a part.
The characteristics of the force. You can select the following:
Constant force/torque- Enter a constant force or torque value or let ADAMS/View use a default value.
Spring-Damper- Enter stiffness and damping coefficients and let ADAMS/View create a function expression for damping and stiffness based on the coefficient values. (Not available when you are using the Main toolbar to access the force tool.)
Custom- ADAMS/View does not set any values for you, which, in effect, creates a force with zero magnitude. After you create the force, you modify it by entering a function expression or parameters to a user-written subroutine that is linked to ADAMS/View.
3) Do one of the following depending on whether you are creating a single-component force or torque:
For a single-component force, select the action body. If you selected to create a torque between two parts, select the reaction body and then select the points of application on the two bodies. Be sure to select the point of application on the action body first.
For a single-component torque, select the action body. If you selected to create a torque between two parts, select the reaction body and then select the points of application on the two bodies. Be sure to select the point of application on the action body first.
4) If you selected to orient the force along a direction vector on a feature, move the cursor around in your model to display an arrow representing the direction along a feature where you want the force oriented. When the direction vector represents the desired orientation, click.
To modify a single-component force:
1) Right-click the object whose properties you want to modify, point to the type of object, and then select Modify. Display the Modify a Force or Modify a Torque dialog box.
The dialog box appears. The options available in the dialog box change depending on the direction of the force. The following shows the Modify a Force dialog box when the force was defined as applied to one part with the direction of the force moving with a direction body.
2) Enter the values in the dialog box and select OK.
