Use Mount Stiffness when you want to approximate the structural deflection of the
bodies that the bushing connects due to the load that the bushing carries. Mount stiffness
is modeled as a set of linear springs and dampers in series with the bushing stiffness and
damping, thus softening the connection between the bodies. Alternatively, you can use
flexible bodies to model the bodies the bushing connects.

this bushing.
MotionView adds a control state equation and
other elements necessary to compute the deflection and rateofchange of
deflection of the bushing mounts due to the loads carried by the bushing.

In the Stiffness Translational and
Rotational fields, enter positive real values for the
X, Y, and Z stiffness of the limits.
Note: Translation dimensions are force and length^{1}. Rotational
dimensions are force and length per radian.

In the Damping Translational and
Rotational fields, enter positive real values for the
X, Y, and Z stiffness of the limits.
Note: Translation dimensions are force, time and length^{1}. Rotational
dimensions are force, length and time per radian.
