Hello ! I'm trying to simulate an hydraulic cylinder which will make turn an hydraulic motor. (Wave energy simulation).
To obtain a good simulation, I have to generate a force source and a velocity source on the cylinder. There is no problem to make them work separately, but how to make them work simultaneously and on the same cylinder ?
Thank you in advance for your answers !

you need:
Force sensor (cylinder) Velocity source (cylinder)
Force source (wheel-axle > motor) Velocity sensor (Wheel-Axle motor)
Then, the motor shaft is driven by a wheel-Axle mechanism taking in the force from cylinder (N) and sending back the translational velocity.
This shall work.
