This file contains a model of a dump trailer built using Simscape. The dump trailer model is powered by a double-acting hydraulic cylinder. The cylinder actuates a scissor hoist mechanism that raises and lowers the dump bed. The model provides an example of how to interface Simscape Multibody components with Simscape so that all mechanical aspects of the system are modeled within Simscape Multibody.
