Problem description with Flux


This section deals with the kinematic coupling and answers the following question: “How is a problem described with Flux?”


To describe motion, one must answer the following questions:

  • What are the moving parts, the fixed parts and the “air displacement area ” (the area of air in which the moving part is moving)?
  • What is the motion type: translation or rotation?
  • What are the kinematic characteristics of motion mass or moment of inertia of the moving part, resistant force or torque acting on the moving part, etc.?

The handling of these questions in Flux is presented in this section.
