The Tea Cups Ride JS Model shows the motion on an amusement park ride.  The 200 kg cups and the 80 kg riders are free to rotate around their center of the cup. The ride platform and cup platform are driven by motors (shown in green) but the motion of the riders about the cup center is not driven.  Click on a cup to seat a person there before clicking Play/Pause to run the ride.  The ride accelerates for some seconds, then stays at maximum angular speed (of the attraction and the platforms) and then slows down until stopping.

This simulation is based on an original idea by Virgina Abellán, Roberto Pérez, and José David Rodríguez. Students of "Modelling Laboratory", 3rd year of the Math Degree at the University of Murcia, Spain. Academic year 2013-2014. The model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EjsS) version 5.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run html page and requires only a browser with JavaScript support.This model simulates a ride in a Tea Cups attraction (as seen from above).
