GProp_PGProps Class Reference

A framework for computing the global properties of a set of points. A point mass is attached to each point. The global mass of the system is the sum of each individual mass. By default, the point mass is equal to 1 and the mass of a system composed of N points is equal to N. Warning A framework of this sort provides functions to handle sets of points easily. But, like any GProp_GProps object, by using the Add function, it can theoretically bring together the computed global properties and those of a system more complex than a set of points . The mass of each point and the density of each component of the composed system must be coherent. Note that this coherence cannot be checked. Nonetheless, you are advised to restrict your use of a GProp_PGProps object to a set of points and to create a GProp_GProps object in order to bring together global properties of different systems.

GProp_PGProps ()
Initializes a framework to compute global properties on a set of points. The point relative to which the inertia of the system is computed will be the origin (0, 0, 0) of the absolute Cartesian coordinate system. At initialization, the framework is empty, i.e. it retains no dimensional information such as mass and inertia. It is, however, now able to keep global properties of a set of points while new points are added using the AddPoint function. The set of points whose global properties are brought together by this framework will then be referred to as the current system. The current system is, however, not kept by this framework, which only keeps that system's global properties. Note that the current system may be more complex than a set of points. More...

GProp_GProps (const gp_Pnt &SystemLocation)
The point SystemLocation is used to compute the gobal properties of the system. For more accuracy it is better to define this point closed to the location of the system. For example it could be a point around the centre of mass of the system. This point is referred to as the reference point for this framework. For greater accuracy it is better for the reference point to be close to the location of the system. It can, for example, be a point near the center of mass of the system. At initialization, the framework is empty; i.e. it retains no dimensional information such as mass, or inertia. However, it is now able to bring together global properties of various other systems, whose global properties have already been computed using another framework. To do this, use the function Add to define the components of the system. Use it once per component of the system, and then use the interrogation functions available to access the computed values.

Computes the principal properties of inertia of the current system. There is always a set of axes for which the products of inertia of a geometric system are equal to 0; i.e. the matrix of inertia of the system is diagonal. These axes are the principal axes of inertia. Their origin is coincident with the center of mass of the system. The associated moments are called the principal moments of inertia. This function computes the eigen values and the eigen vectors of the matrix of inertia of the system. Results are stored by using a presentation framework of principal properties of inertia (GProp_PrincipalProps object) which may be queried to access the value sought. More...
