siconos.mechanics.joints.PivotJointR (Python class)

class siconos.mechanics.joints.PivotJointR(*args)[source]

Bases: siconos.mechanics.joints.KneeJointR

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

  • Inherits from KneeJointR

Generated class (swig), based on C++ header Program listing for file mechanics/src/joints/PivotJointR.hpp.

Constructors

PivotJointR()

Empty constructor.

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

PivotJointR(array_like (np.float64, 1D) P, array_like (np.float64, 1D) A, bool absoluteRef, NewtonEulerDS d1=NewtonEulerDS(), NewtonEulerDS d2=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.

computeJachqDoF(double time, Interaction inter, BlockVector q0, array_like (np.float64, 2D) jachq, int axis) → None[source]

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

computeh(double time, BlockVector q0, array_like (np.float64, 1D) y) → None[source]
computehDoF(double time, BlockVector q0, array_like (np.float64, 1D) y, int axis) → None[source]

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

numberOfConstraints() → int[source]

Get the number of constraints defined in the joint.

Returns:the number of constraints
numberOfDoF() → int[source]

Return the number of degrees of freedom of this joint.

Returns:the number of degrees of freedom (DoF)
setBasePositions(array_like (np.float64, 1D) q1, array_like (np.float64, 1D) q2=array_like (np.float64, 1D)()) → None[source]

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.
typeOfDoF(int axis) → DoF_Type[source]

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

Returns:the type of the degree of freedom (DoF)
