I've a problem in simulating rolling motion of a wheel on a surface.When i added motor the wheel is not rolling forward.It is just rotating about its axis only.
Please help me.I'm attaching the assembly too.
Welcome to SW forums Kumararaja
Are you just looking for the animation or some simulation for these two parts.
Also please delete the other two similar post of yours.
You might also find this post helpful for your future reference.
Thanks for ur quick response deepak.
I'm NOT looking just for animation.
I want to perform simulation, like by varying the surface (Road) texture differant forces acted on it etc.
But for me to proceed any more i need to be first able to achieve that motion.
You need 3D contact between wheel and road.
I was never able to have friction in 3D contact, so instead of putting motors on the wheels just give the vehicle an initial velocity.
SW was unable to do everything I wanted with wheeled vehicles.
In the attached files I have the wheel rolling across the plate in a general diagonal direction. Some things to note about this solution:
Hope this helps.
In regards to above problem, can we find reaction forces on the wheel by the surface. Kindly, help me with a method to find the reaction forces.
I figure out the solution. Its using contact forces.
