Mass Properties

Description

The Symmetric Inertia Tensor block creates an inertia tensor from moments and products of inertia. Each input corresponds to an element of the tensor.

The inertia tensor has the form of

Inertia=[IxxIxyIyzIxyIyyIxzIyzIxzIzz]

Inputs and Outputs

InputDimension TypeDescription

First

 Contains the moment of inertia about the x-axis.

Second

 Contains the product of inertia in the xy plane.

Third

 Contains the product of inertia in the xz plane.

Fourth

 Contains the moment of inertia about the y-axis.

Fifth

 Contains the product of inertia in the yz plane.

Sixth

 Contains the moment of inertia about the z-axis.

OutputDimension TypeDescription

First

 Contains a symmetric 3-by-3 inertia tensor.

Introduced before R2006a
