I've been trying to debug a model I've created of a 4DOF geared system within Simulink by reproducing the results in MATLAB going from a 2DOF upwards to verify the dynamics are acting correctly.
At the moment I am purely trying to model the stiffness between two gears, my equations...
Sorry, in the mainscript code that I listed I meant to take out the "k_mb = 50;". I have edited it and put it below.
% Mainscript for vibration analysis (19/01/2017).
%% Defining global variables
global r_p r_g I_p I_g m_p m_g k_mb
r_p = 10; % pinion...
I have the following ode code, and I want to know how I could output the variable "k_mb" within my main script so that I can plot it to see if it's actually active when the solver is integrating.
function zdot = odenesttest(t,z)
global r_p r_g I_p I_g m_p m_g V k_mb
Sorry, I'm still an intermediate at using the ode solvers with matlab. I'll list below what I have written (excluding what you have shown me previously).

global k_mb r_p r_g I_p I_g m_p...
Just one more thing (I didn't think it'd be worthwhile beginning a new thread for this when you've responded in here). I'm now trying to incorporate the repeating function into my ODE solving function which obviously requires a bit of modification to the code we have in the previous posts. I'm...
This is great, works perfectly with the addition of this at the end:
if V(current_index) ~= max_angle
V(current_index) = ;
Otherwise the last entry in the V array is either over by 5 or 10. But with that, it works nicely.
I'll be sure to check out those...
Sorry for the confusion, let me explain. The purpose of this is to simulate the revolution of a pair of gears in mesh, so if the user wants to simulate 10 revolutions the angle will be 3600°, if they want to rotate the gears 1 revolution then the angle will be 360°, etc. So the angle is the only...
Once I start testing the ODE solver, I'll be sure to keep that in mind if it becomes an issue.
One further thing, see how the array, V = [0,5,15,20,30,35,45,50,60]; (pre-determined and put in). I want to write something that allows the user to input the angle and then the array is generated...
The addition of 'last' in the lower_index, fixed the problem instantly. Thus, for:
angle = 4 -> a_or_b_for_angle = 5
angle = 6 -> a_or_b_for_angle = 10
angle = 46 -> a_or_b_for_angle = 5
angle = 59 -> a_or_b_for_angle = 10
Thank you very much for your help, I'll use this as my base for my ODE...
Again, many thanks. I'm quite sure I know what it is trying to achieve.
If I run:
angle = 4;
V = [0,5,15,20,30,35,45,50,60];
A_or_B = [5,10];
lower_index = find(V < angle, 1);
even_or_odd = mod(lower_index,2);
a_or_b_for_angle = A_or_B(2 - even_or_odd);
The values of each vector are...
Maybe it'll be more clear if I explain the application. I am trying to make a function that allows me to apply a torsional stiffness for gear teeth in mesh, as the gear rotates the gear (in this case) will be in either singular contact or double contact. Where I'm assigning 5° for single and 10°...
Do you mean for each interval there would be an if statement associated with it? This is the nature of the application that I require for an example of 60°:
See how the function needs to be able to periodically apply the values dependent on the total angle...
I need your help writing the meat of a function that I need for a MATLAB script I'm writing.
The jist of it is, starting from 0°, when between 0.0° - 5.0° apply a certain value, when between 5.0° - 15.0° apply another value. However, the relative amount of rotation can be user...
