Rotating tube - Motion analysis

Question asked by Rick Ophuis on Jul 17, 2018

Hello everyone,

 

I am working on a Motion Analysis model for rotating a tube.

 

So it is a tube, supported by 4 wheels. One wheel is driven.

I have added gravity, and solid body contact between the tube and the wheels.

When I run the study, the driven wheel turns, and the tube turns also. The other 3 wheels ( which also have a solid body contact ) don't turn, which apparantly should, by friction and weight.

 

 

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?
