Question: Apply a torque on a revolute joint

August 29 2014 Bendesarts 160


I would like to apply a torque directly on a revolute joint. I use a torque modulated by a signal source which is modified chirp signal.

I have done like in the figure below :

After having added this torque, my model no longer runs. The error message is only "simulation interrupted".

Do I correctly plug the torque ? Should I plug the torque element more in the flange a or b of the considered revolute joint ?

Do I tick "use support flange" ? Anyway, with or without, my model crashes.

Thanks a lot for your help.
