simscape.multibody.UniformDensity class

Package: simscape.multibody
Superclasses: simscape.multibody.Inertia

Construct uniform mass distribution with given density

Description

Use an object of the simscape.multibody.UniformDensity class to construct a uniform mass distribution with a given density. If you define the mass distribution of a solid by using a UniformDensity object, the solid has a constant density over the entire geometry. To compute the properties of a solid, such as the center of mass, moments of inertia, and products of inertia, the UniformDensity object uses the geometry and mass of the solid.
