Circle to Finite Line Contact Force (2D)

This block implements a 2D contact force between a circle and a finite line. The force is active above and below the line.

This is part of the Simscape Multibody Contact Forces Library

Frame connected to LinB port:

  1. Located at midpoint of line.
  2. X-axis is normal to the finite line.
  3. Y-axis is along the finite line.

Frame connected to the CirF port:

  1. Z-axis aligned with frame attached to LinB port.

Output signal is a bus with intermediate calculations and total force.
