  • Library:
  • Aerospace Blockset / Mass Properties

  • Symmetric Inertia Tensor block

Description

The Symmetric Inertia Tensor block creates an inertia tensor from moments and products of inertia. Each input corresponds to an element of the tensor.

The inertia tensor has the form of:

Inertia=[IxxIxyIxzIxyIyyIyzIxzIyzIzz]

Ports
