Harmonic Pendulums

05May11

Inspired by this video, I decided to create a simulation of the same in Grasshopper and Kangaroo. It’s a series of uncoupled pendulums with lengths that increase in such a way that they each oscillate a whole number of times in a given period, producing harmonic motion.

EDIT: definition now available here.

In other news, coming up on the end of my semester in Rome… once work wraps up I will be posting more of my recent work + research.
