## Detailed Description

### template<class P> class SimTK::UnitInertia_< P >

A UnitInertia matrix is a unit-mass inertia matrix; you can convert it to an Inertia by multiplying it by the actual body mass.

Functionality is limited here to those few operations which ensure unit mass; most operations on a UnitInertia matrix result in a general Inertia instead. You can use a UnitInertia object wherever an Inertia is expected but not vice versa.

When constructing a UnitInertia matrix, note that we cannot verify that it actually has unit mass because every legal Inertia matrix can be viewed as the UnitInertia matrix for some differently-scaled object.

Unit inertia matrices are sometimes called "gyration" matrices; we will often represent them with the symbol "G" to avoid confusion with general inertia matrices for which the symbol "I" (or sometimes "J") is used.

### Abbreviations

Typedefs exist for the most common invocations of UnitInertia_<P>:

## ◆ UnitInertia_() [1/8]

template<class P>
 SimTK::UnitInertia_< P >::UnitInertia_ ( )
inline

Default is a NaN-ed out mess to avoid accidents, even in Release mode.

Other than this value, a UnitInertia_ should always be valid.

## ◆ UnitInertia_() [2/8]

template<class P>
 SimTK::UnitInertia_< P >::UnitInertia_ ( const RealP & moment )
inlineexplicit

Create a principal unit inertia matrix with identical diagonal elements.

This is the unit inertia matrix of a unit mass sphere of radius r = sqrt(5/2 * moment) centered on the origin.

## ◆ UnitInertia_() [3/8]

template<class P>
 SimTK::UnitInertia_< P >::UnitInertia_ ( const Vec3P & moments, const Vec3P & products = `Vec3P(0)` )
inlineexplicit

Create a unit inertia matrix from a vector of the moments of inertia (the inertia matrix diagonal) and optionally a vector of the products of inertia (the off-diagonals).

Moments are in the order xx,yy,zz; products are xy,xz,yz.

## ◆ UnitInertia_() [4/8]

template<class P>
 SimTK::UnitInertia_< P >::UnitInertia_ ( const RealP & xx, const RealP & yy, const RealP & zz )
inline

Create a principal unit inertia matrix (only non-zero on diagonal).

## ◆ UnitInertia_() [5/8]

template<class P>
 SimTK::UnitInertia_< P >::UnitInertia_ ( const RealP & xx, const RealP & yy, const RealP & zz, const RealP & xy, const RealP & xz, const RealP & yz )
inline

This is a general unit inertia matrix.

Note the order of these arguments: moments of inertia first, then products of inertia.

## ◆ UnitInertia_() [6/8]

template<class P>
 SimTK::UnitInertia_< P >::UnitInertia_ ( const SymMat33P & m )
inlineexplicit

Construct a UnitInertia from a symmetric 3x3 matrix.

The diagonals must be nonnegative and satisfy the triangle inequality.

## ◆ UnitInertia_() [7/8]

template<class P>
 SimTK::UnitInertia_< P >::UnitInertia_ ( const Mat33P & m )
inlineexplicit

Construct a UnitInertia from a 3x3 symmetric matrix.

In Debug mode we'll test that the supplied matrix is numerically close to symmetric, and that it satisfies other requirements of an inertia matrix.

## ◆ UnitInertia_() [8/8]

template<class P>
 SimTK::UnitInertia_< P >::UnitInertia_ ( const Inertia_< P > & inertia )
inlineexplicit

Construct a UnitInertia matrix from an Inertia matrix.

Note that there is no way to check whether this is really a unit inertia – any inertia matrix may be interpreted as a unit inertia for some shape. So be sure you know what you're doing before you use this constructor!

## ◆ setUnitInertia() [1/3]

template<class P>
 UnitInertia_& SimTK::UnitInertia_< P >::setUnitInertia ( const RealP & xx, const RealP & yy, const RealP & zz )
inline

Set a UnitInertia matrix to have only principal moments (that is, it will be diagonal).

Returns a reference to "this" like an assignment operator.

## ◆ setUnitInertia() [2/3]

template<class P>
 UnitInertia_& SimTK::UnitInertia_< P >::setUnitInertia ( const Vec3P & moments, const Vec3P & products = `Vec3P(0)` )
inline

Set principal moments and optionally off-diagonal terms.

Returns a reference to "this" like an assignment operator.

## ◆ setUnitInertia() [3/3]

template<class P>
 UnitInertia_& SimTK::UnitInertia_< P >::setUnitInertia ( const RealP & xx, const RealP & yy, const RealP & zz, const RealP & xy, const RealP & xz, const RealP & yz )
inline

Set this UnitInertia to a general matrix.

Note the order of these arguments: moments of inertia first, then products of inertia. Behaves like an assignment statement. Will throw an error message in Debug mode if the supplied elements do not constitute a valid inertia matrix.

## ◆ shiftToCentroid()

template<class P>
 UnitInertia_ SimTK::UnitInertia_< P >::shiftToCentroid ( const Vec3P & CF ) const
inline

Assuming that this unit inertia matrix is currently taken about some (implicit) frame F's origin OF, produce a new unit inertia matrix which is the same as this one except measured about the body's centroid CF.

We are given the vector from OF to the centroid CF, expressed in F. This produces a new UnitInertia matrix G' whose (implicit) frame F' is aligned with F but has origin CF (an inertia matrix like that is called "central" or "centroidal"). From the parallel axis theorem for inertias, G' = G - Gcom where Gcom is the inertia matrix of a fictitious, unit-mass point located at CF (measured in F) taken about OF. (17 flops)

shiftToCentroidInPlace(), shiftFromCentroid()

## ◆ shiftToCentroidInPlace()

template<class P>
 UnitInertia_& SimTK::UnitInertia_< P >::shiftToCentroidInPlace ( const Vec3P & CF )
inline

Assuming that this unit inertia matrix is currently taken about some (implicit) frame F's origin OF, modify it so that it is instead taken about the body's centroid CF.

We are given the vector from OF to the centroid CF, expressed in F. This produces a new UnitInertia G' whose (implicit) frame F' is aligned with F but has origin CF (an inertia matrix like that is called "central" or "centroidal"). From the parallel axis theorem for inertias, G' = G - Gcom where Gcom is the inertia matrix of a fictitious, unit-mass point located at CF (measured in F) taken about OF. A reference to the modified object is returned so that you can chain this method in the manner of assignment operators. Cost is 17 flops.

shiftToCentroid() if you want to leave this object unmolested.
shiftFromCentroidInPlace()

## ◆ shiftFromCentroid()

template<class P>
 UnitInertia_ SimTK::UnitInertia_< P >::shiftFromCentroid ( const Vec3P & p ) const
inline

Assuming that the current UnitInertia G is a central inertia (that is, it is inertia about the body centroid CF), create a new object that is the same as this one except shifted to some other point p measured from the centroid.

This produces a new inertia G' about the point p given by G' = G + Gp where Gp is the inertia of a fictitious point located at p, taken about CF. Cost is 17 flops.

shiftFromCentroidInPlace(), shiftToCentroid()

## ◆ shiftFromCentroidInPlace()

template<class P>
 UnitInertia_& SimTK::UnitInertia_< P >::shiftFromCentroidInPlace ( const Vec3P & p )
inline

Assuming that the current UnitInertia G is a central inertia (that is, it is inertia about the body centroid CF), shift it in place to some other point p measured from the centroid.

This changes G to a modified inertia G' taken about the point p, with the parallel axis theorem for inertia giving G' = G + Gp where Gp is the inertia of a fictitious, unit-mass point located at p, taken about CF. Cost is 17 flops.

shiftFromCentroid() if you want to leave this object unmolested.
shiftToCentroidInPlace()

## ◆ reexpress() [1/2]

template<class P>
 UnitInertia_ SimTK::UnitInertia_< P >::reexpress ( const Rotation_< P > & R_FB ) const
inline

Return a new unit inertia matrix like this one but re-expressed in another frame (leaving the origin point unchanged).

Call this inertia matrix G_OF_F, that is, it is taken about the origin of some frame F, and expressed in F. We want to return G_OF_B, the same unit inertia matrix, still taken about the origin of F, but expressed in the B frame, given by G_OF_B=R_BF*G_OF_F*R_FB where R_FB is the rotation matrix giving the orientation of frame B in F. This is handled here by a special method of the Rotation class which rotates a symmetric tensor at a cost of 57 flops.

reexpressInPlace()

## ◆ reexpress() [2/2]

template<class P>
 UnitInertia_ SimTK::UnitInertia_< P >::reexpress ( const InverseRotation_< P > & R_FB ) const
inline

Rexpress using an inverse rotation to avoid having to convert it.
