Create educational tools to explain mechanisms & vibrations

  1. Feb 7, 2016 #1

    I have to hold a short course on applied mechanics and mechanical vibrations and I would like to develop a tool similar to the one shown in the linked webinar below (min 27.43):


    What do you think would be the best software to develop this kind of tools?

    Alternatively, if you have a good quality digital camera you could capture some vibrations in real time. A very cool shot would be a long thin beam traveling through water. This will illustrate aero-elasticity, vibration of a structure due to fluid motion. You can get some food coloring and visualize the flow pattern behind the beam too.
