Ideal mechanical translational mass
Mechanical Translational Elements
The Mass block represents an ideal mechanical translational mass, described with the following equation:
The block has one mechanical translational conserving port. The block positive direction is from its port to the reference point. This means that the inertia force is positive if mass is accelerated in positive direction.
Mass. The default value is
Use the Variables tab in the block dialog box (or the Variables section in the block Property Inspector) to set the priority and initial target values for the block variables prior to simulation. For more information, see Set Priority and Initial Target for Block Variables.
The block has one mechanical translational conserving port, associated with the mass connection to the system.
