# Torque Input for bike model

Hi Guys,

I am currently trying to put a torque profile into the bike model
provided in the repository.
As the torque ( or crank moment) was being calculated like this :
AnyForce CrankMoment ={
AnyJoint &Jnt=.CrankJoint;
F=
{…BikeParameters.CrankMomentOffset-…BikeParameters.CrankMomentAmpcos
(4
pi*t/…BikeParameters.T+ …BikeParameters.CrankMomentPhase)};
};

i had hoped that i would be able to give it the torque like this:

AnyForce CrankMoment =
{
AnyJoint &Jnt=.CrankJoint;

`````` AnyInputFile TorqueIn = {
FileName = "TorqueInput.txt";
};

AnyVector Time_T = TorqueIn.T;
AnyMatrix Data_mat = TorqueIn.Data;
F = {Data_mat[t*303/2]};
``````

};

However i get this error:
‘[’ : Illegal operation for given argument types : ‘AnyFloat[1]
[101]’ ‘[’ ‘AnyFloat’
For the line which calculates F, i thought it might just be that it
wants a second argument so i added [1] infront of [var] but that just
returns
‘F’ : Index [1] out of range for ‘AnyFloat[1][101]’

Is it possible to get AnyBody to do this? Or is it necessary to go

the file TorqueInput.txt has two columns of data, one with the time
and the other with the torque at that time.

Hi Alex,

I think the easiest way is to use an AnyFunInterpol, the code would look
like this :

AnyForce CrankMoment =
{
AnyJoint &Jnt=.CrankJoint;

AnyFunInterpol TorqueIn = {

Type = Bspline;
FileName = “TorqueInput.txt”;
};

F = TorqueIn(t);
};

This way the moment applied to the joint is directly read the text file.

Hi Sylvain,

Thanks a lot, that works well.

Hi,

I’m now trying to use the same method to put the cadence in for each
time step (my cadence changes throughout the revolution. Unfortunately
when i try and run this I get an error message saying that the
DriverVel expression is failing at moment ‘DesignVar’ and that the
‘CrankRotation.t’ argument will not be ready for evaluation until
moment ‘TimeVar’.

Here is the code where the error occurs:
AnyKinEqSimpleDriver CrankRotation = {
AnyRevoluteJoint &Jnt = .CrankJoint;
AnyFunInterpol LocalCadence = {
Type = Bspline;
};

`````` DriverPos = {0};
Reaction.Type = {Off};
``````

};

The cadence file is set up exactly like the torque file was and the
array used for the time matches up exactly with all the times in both
files. Do the drivers get initialised at the start and as such have
issues with time dependence? Any assistance would be greatly
appreciated

Best Regards
Alex Purdue

Hi Alex,

What happens is that the AnyKinEqSimpleDriver takes only constant values as
input for the position and velocity. Interpolation functions are not allowed
as input for this driver. So it expects the constant to be evaluated at a
certain moment during the loading, but as you input a variable (variables
are evaluated after constants in the sequence) you got this time dependency
error.

So the solution is to use an AnyKinEqInterpolDriver, this one will
interpolate data like an AnyFunInterpol and use it to drive the measure.
However notice that the AnyKinEqInterpolDriver can only drive the position
and not the velocity. So you will have to calculate the position
corresponding to the cadence and input this data in the
AnyKinEqInterpolDriver.
