Translational Hardstop

Double-sided translational mechanism that restricts motion to a set length Description 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, ${\mathrm{flange}}_{a}$, is attached to the center of the gap, and the hollow connector, ${\mathrm{flange}}_{b}$, 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.
