How to understand "Total torque" acting on a revolute joint ?
1 view (last 30 days)
I have trouble understanding the meaning of "Total torque".
In double pendulum (multi-body 2nd generation, Matlab) under gravity, when I tried to check the value of torque acting on the first revolute joint, there's 3 components. https://jp.mathworks.com/examples/simmechanics/mw/sm_product-sm_double_pendulum-assembling-parts-into-a-double-pendulum
I'd like to know the the torque around y axis as shown in this Figure... I think "tty" means the "τ" that I'd like to check... am I right ?

The total torque acting at a joint includes contributions from actuation, constraint, and internal torques. For an explanation of those terms, look at this documentation page which explains them in detail.
