Units in Dynamic Simulation for Imposed Motion

130 Views, 0 Replies

Running a dynamic simulation on a linkage.  Using an imposed motion at a contanst velocity on one of the asembly joints.

In looking at the results I'm seeing a driving force listed as an output for that joint - Is this the required force to turn the linkage ?  If so what are the units of this imposed force ?  Is it Torque in ft lbs or torque in in lbs ?  Or is it some type of other force unit ?  I just specified a constant velocity,  there are no force units on the imposed motion.

 

Thanks,

Tim
