# Class PivotJointR¶

class PivotJointR : public KneeJointR

This class implements a pivots joint between one or two Newton/Euler Dynamical system.

Public Functions

PivotJointR()

Empty constructor.

The relation may be initialized later by setPoint, setAxis, setAbsolute, and setBasePositions.

PivotJointR(SP::SiconosVector P, SP::SiconosVector A, bool absoluteRef, SP::NewtonEulerDS d1 = SP::NewtonEulerDS(), SP::NewtonEulerDS d2 = SP::NewtonEulerDS())

Constructor based on one or two dynamical systems, a point and an axis.

Parameters
• d1: first DynamicalSystem linked by the joint.

• d2: second DynamicalSystem linked by the joint, or NULL for absolute frame.

• P: SiconosVector of size 3 that defines the point around which rotation is allowed.

• A: SiconosVector of size 3 that defines the cylindrical axis.

• absoluteRef: if true, P and A are in the absolute frame, otherwise P and A are in d1 frame.

virtual ~PivotJointR()

destructor

virtual void computehDoF(double time, BlockVector &q0, SiconosVector &y, unsigned int axis)

Compute the vector of linear and angular positions of the free axes.

virtual void computeJachqDoF(double time, Interaction &inter, SP::BlockVector q0, SimpleMatrix &jachq, unsigned int axis)

Compute the jacobian of linear and angular DoF with respect to some q.

virtual unsigned int numberOfConstraints()

Get the number of constraints defined in the joint.

Return

the number of constraints

virtual unsigned int numberOfDoF()

Return the number of degrees of freedom of this joint.

Return

the number of degrees of freedom (DoF)

virtual void setBasePositions(SP::SiconosVector q1, SP::SiconosVector q2 = SP::SiconosVector())

Initialize the joint constants based on the provided base positions.

Parameters
• q1: A SiconosVector of size 7 indicating translation and orientation in inertial coordinates.

• q2: An optional SiconosVector of size 7 indicating translation and orientation; if null, the inertial frame will be considered as the second base.

virtual DoF_Type typeOfDoF(unsigned int axis)

Return the type of a degree of freedom of this joint.

Return

the type of the degree of freedom (DoF)
