Forces, Torques, and Fields

External Force and Torque General force and torque arising outside the modeled system
Gravitational Field Field of force due to point mass
Internal Force General force acting reciprocally between two frame origins
Inverse Square Law Force Force proportional to the inverse square distance between two frame origins
Spring and Damper Force Force proportional to the distance and relative velocity between two frame origins


Transform Sensor Sensor that measures the spatial relationship between two frames


Mechanism Configuration Mechanism-wide simulation and mechanical parameters
