Thank you for your guidance. I would appreciate it if you could help me understand the following questions as well:

Can we simulate the damping/stiffness of a Power Take-Off (PTO) system using just two fenders along the vertical axis, deactivating other degrees of freedom (DoF), instead of using eight fenders on two horizontal levels to restrict motions?

If we want to use a linear damper with no stiffness, such as a 5 NÂ·s/m damper, what values should we input for the damping coefficient (with units in seconds) and for coefficient A (with units in N/m)?
