Double-sided translational mechanism that restricts motion to a set length
The Translational Hardstop component represents a double-sided translational mechanism that restricts the motion to a set length. The mechanism is assumed to be in the center of this region so that the solid connector, flangea, is attached to the center of the gap, and the hollow connector, flangeb, is attached to the frame that is moving back and forth.
The hardstop is modeled as a stiff spring-damper. The compliance of the mechanism can be controlled by adjusting the stiffness (c) and damping (d) coefficients in the component parameters.
