Motion simulation

  1. Apr 18, 2005 #1
    I am looking for a software that will allow me to predict the motion of a ball on a particular surface. In reality, surface is made of a large, framed rubber sheet that is pulled by a heavy weight at the middle. A marble is rolled across the sheet in circles, elipses, spirals, etc. The function that describes the profile of this surface is unknown, but once we find it it won't be pretty, so I need to be able to input the function that describes the surface into the software. Output should be the trajectory of the marble on the rubber.

    (Note to mods: I had absolutely no idea where to post this, so I figured I'd start here and let the thread migrate as you see fit. :smile:)

    Many thanks,
    Chen
