Swing Ride Model
written by Michael R. Gallis
The Swing Ride Model simulates a type of ride that can be found at many carnivals and amusement parks. Riders are suspended from the ends of supports. These supports rotate about an axis that can be tilted with respect to the vertical. In this simulation the controls are lagged to prevent unrealistic changes to the physical system.
The Swing Ride Model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).
