Basic Motion, Torque, and Force Modeling

Model driveshaft motion, torque, and force using inertias and gears

The purpose of a gear set is to transfer rotational motion and torque at a known ratio from one driveline axis to another. Simscape™ Driveline™ allows you to model simple and custom gears for coupling bodies that are rotating on a driveline axis.

The rules that apply to angular gears in relation to rotational motion and torque are analogous to the rules that apply to linear gears in relation to translational motion and force.
