This simulation illustrates the behavior of standing waves in situation where one end fixed, both ends are fixed, and both ends are free. The simulation allows the user to examine the standing wave behavior at the fundamental frequency and when the first three harmonics are added. The user can control the amplitude of each of the harmonics and observe the resulting pattern.

Please note that this resource requires Shockwave.
