3.11.1.4 Initial Rigid Velocity

In dynamic analysis, the initial velocity of a rigid body can be set via the initial_rigid_velocity rigid constraint. It requires the following parameters.
parameters Description
rb The rigid body's material ID. (1)
value The initial velocity vector
Comments:
  1. This is the “id” attribute assigned to the corresponding rigid body material as defined in the Material section.
The following example defines an initial velocity for a rigid body.
<rigid_constraint type="initial_rigid_velocity">
  <rb>1</rb>
  <value>1,0,0</value>
</rigid_constraint>
