Projects > Bowed string motion

For my final project in Computational Physics I chose to model the motion of bowed strings. Having played classical violin for over 10 years, the subject is really interesting to me and I believe I have a unique insight into the physics of stringed instruments.

Bowed string motion

 Pictured above is a figure from my project showing the motion of a bowed string as well as the stick-slip behavior of Helmholtz motion.
