AnyForceMomentMeasure2 class output values

#1

Hello,

When one uses the AnyForceMomentMeasure2 class to calculate moments, the output values are M(0), M(1) and M(2). Do these correspond to moments in the x,y and z directions? It is not clear in the Anybody Modelling system. I am using the global reference frame.

Thanks,
Vic.

Hi Victor,

Short answer is yes.

The manual says: M OutputVar Equivalent point moment/torque vector in global coordinates.

If in doubt about such things, it can be a good idea to make a simple one segment model and ensure you understand the output from it.

Hi Soren,
Thank you, I have checked the manual as well. I was getting unusually high values and had some doubts.
