Main Document

Double Pendulum Phase Space Model 

written by Dieter Roess

The Double Pendulum Phase Space Model shows a frictionless double pendulum that is driven periodically by an external source.  The massless rigid pendulum rods are shown as straight lines. Masses are concentrated in the center of the pendulum bobs.
