Slider-Crank Mechanism with Friction

This example shows a torque-driven slider-crank mechanism driven with friction applied at the slider. The rotational and translational Simscape Multibody interface elements provide the connection between the 3D mechanical model in Simscape Multibody and the 1D mechanical elements in Simscape
