This model simulates a rolling ball on plane. It is constructed in SimMechanics (2nd generation). The contact between ball and plane is modelled by taking into accout the support force and simple friction force. The model uses an S-function coded in C language. It must be compiled first by giving a command "mex ballplanecontact.c" in the MATLAB Command Window. The model was inspired by SimMechanics Contact Forces Library.

Hi, i want to change the sphere into a cylinder, so that i can simulate the behavior of a wheel instead of a ball. Can you please suggest what factors should i be looking to change inside the contact forces library in order to simulate a rolling wheel on a flat surface? Thanks in advance!
Interesting simulation. Thanks!
Hi, is it possible to upload a complied version? SDK is acting funny on windows 7.
