Closed Kinematic Loops III
To avoid the redundancies associated with these closed connections, it is possible to declare one joint of each kinematically closed loop as cut joint.
Cut joints do not define any integrators, thereby eliminating the introduction of redundant equations.
Dymola used to support this idea by offering a number of cut joints.
The approach was given up, because it required a manual analysis of the system topology by the user.
