Translational Damper

Linear 1D translational damper

 Description The Translational Damper (or Damper) component models a linear 1-D velocity-dependent translational damper.
 Equations $f=d{v}_{\mathrm{rel}}=-{f}_{a}={f}_{b}$ ${s}_{\mathrm{rel}}={s}_{b}-{s}_{a}$ ${v}_{\mathrm{rel}}={\stackrel{.}{s}}_{\mathrm{rel}}$ $\mathrm{lossPower}=f{v}_{\mathrm{rel}}$

Variables
