Direction of the Flocal

Hello Anybody
i want to make an external load as Flocal :slight_smile:AnyFolder Loads = {
AnyForce3D external = {

     Flocal = {580,0, 0};
     AnyRefFrame &PointOfAttack = Main.HumanModel.BodyModel.Trunk.SegmentsThorax.ThoraxSeg.C7;
  I use this cod to view the Force but the vector of the force didn't change the Direction  along with the C7 segment

AnyDrawVector drF = {
// Vec = .Flocal/200;
// Line = {
// Style = Line3DStyleFull;
// Thickness = 0.01;
// RGB = {1, 0, 0};
// End = {
// Style = Line3DCapStyleArrow;
// RGB = {1, 0, 0};
// Thickness = 0.02;
// Length = 0.05;
// };
// };
// AnyRefFrame &Palm = Main.HumanModel.BodyModel.Trunk.SegmentsThorax.ThoraxSeg.C7;

Hi Aneoo,

The code displayed here would fail to load as i read it?

To draw the force you would need something like this.

AnyDrawVector DRAW_A_Vector ={
Vec =.Flocal/200;
GlobalCoord = Off; //make the vector draw in local ref system
AnyRefFrame &PointOfAttack = AnyRefFrame &ref= Main.HumanModel.BodyModel.Trunk.SegmentsThorax.ThoraxSeg.C7;

Note that the vector will be constant wrt to the vertebra.

Best regards

Hi toerholm,
Thanks. It worked.
i fixed the pelvis seg and loaded a external Force on the C7.then I want to measure the moment on following joint.
AnyFolder Joints=
AnyStdJoint SeatPelvis=
AnyRefFrame &Seat=Main.Model.EnvironmentModel.GlobalRef.Hpoint;
AnyRefFrame &Pelvis=Main.HumanModel.BodyModel.Trunk.SegmentsLumbar.PelvisSeg;

how can i do this?

Hi Aneoo,

The standard joint has such output like other joints have. So simply look at this output from the joint. (taken from reference manual)

Class type: AnyFloat
Eval moment: OutputVar
Default: "Dependent"
Array of 3D moment vectors (global coordinates) associated with the references frames used by the force object (i.e. by the underlying kinematic measure).

Best regards
