Mechanical Assembly with Hinge Joint

Model ID: 13891


This example illustrates how to model a barrel hinge connecting two solid objects in an assembly. In this model, the details of the connection are not the focus of the analysis, therefore, the hinge joint is modeled using a Joint feature in the Multibody Dynamics Module. The connected parts can be either rigid or flexible or a combination as shown in this model.

This model was built using the following:
