Rotational Damper

Linear 1D rotational damper

 Description The Rotational Damper (or Damper) component models a linear velocity-dependent damper.
 Equations $\mathrm{\tau }=d{w}_{\mathrm{rel}}=-{\mathrm{\tau }}_{a}={\mathrm{\tau }}_{b}$ ${w}_{\mathrm{rel}}={\stackrel{.}{\mathrm{\phi }}}_{\mathrm{rel}}$ ${\mathrm{\phi }}_{\mathrm{rel}}={\mathrm{\phi }}_{b}-{\mathrm{\phi }}_{a}$ ${a}_{\mathrm{rel}}={\stackrel{.}{w}}_{\mathrm{rel}}$ $\mathrm{lossPower}=\mathrm{\tau }{w}_{\mathrm{rel}}$
