PARAMETERS
NameTypeDefault ValueDescription
resolveInFrameResolveInFrameAModelica.Mechanics.MultiBody.Types.ResolveInFrameA.frame_aFrame in which output vector(s) is/are resolved (1: world, 2: frame_a, 3: frame_resolve)
animationBooleantrue= true, if animation shall be enabled (show force and torque arrow)
positiveSignBooleantrue= true, if force and torque with positive sign is returned (= frame_a.f/.t), otherwise with negative sign (= frame_b.f/.t)
csignIntegerif positiveSign then +1 else -1
