Elastic Wave on a String JS Model
written by Kostas Papamichalis
The Elastic Wave on a String JS Model shows the motion of a mechanical system consisted of an oscillator attached at the edge of a semi-infinite elastic string. The oscillator creates a disturbance on the string that moves along the string as an elastic wave. Energy is transferred from the oscillator to the string resulting in a dissipation effect on the motion of the oscillator; the motion of the oscillator is a damped oscillation.

A supplemental document presents the model's theory using a Lagrange function to model a chain of coupled oscillators and the principle of least action.
