Rotational Bearing Friction

Coulomb friction in bearings

 Description The Rotational Bearing Friction (or Bearing Friction) component models Coulomb friction in bearings, i.e., a frictional torque acting between a flange and the housing. Torque Table The ${\mathrm{\tau }}_{\mathrm{pos}}$ parameter is a two-dimensional table (array) that specifies the torque at given angular velocities. Each row has the form $\left[w,\mathrm{\tau }\left(w\right)\right]$. The first column must be ordered, $0\le {w}_{1}<{w}_{2}<\cdots <{w}_{m}$. To add rows, right-click on the value and select Edit Matrix Dimension. Only linear interpolation is supported.

 Name Default Units Description Modelica ID ${\mathrm{\omega }}_{\mathrm{small}}$ $1·{10}^{10}$ $\frac{\mathrm{rad}}{s}$ The velocity reinitializes when $\left|\mathrm{\omega }\right|\le {\mathrm{\omega }}_{\mathrm{small}}$ w_small ${K}_{\mathrm{locked}}$ $0$ $1$ Gain driving the relative motion between the friction elements to 0 when locked. This parameter should only be non-zero when using the model with fixed-step integration. K_locked
