Rotational Inertia

1D-rotational component with inertia

 Description The Rotational Inertia (or Inertia) component models rotational inertia with two rigidly connected flanges.
 Equations $\mathrm{\phi }={\mathrm{\phi }}_{a}={\mathrm{\phi }}_{b}$ $w=\stackrel{.}{\mathrm{\phi }}$ $a=\stackrel{.}{w}$ $Ja={\mathrm{\tau }}_{a}+{\mathrm{\tau }}_{b}$
