Tether – Multibody, Multi-Domain Physical Model in MapleSim – Maplesoft


The multidomain model simulates a tether using a cable and one wheel. Pulleys, strings, and wheels are modeled using a combination of multibody, mechanical, signal flow, and custom components. CAD Geometry is used to enhance the visualization for a better understanding of model dynamics.
