Rotating Double Pendulum MapleSim Model - Rotating Double Pendulum S-Function - MapleSim Model Gallery

Rotating Double Pendulum

This is a standard benchmark model that shows how oscillations in pendulum swinging around point O will induce oscillations into a rectangular plate that can rotate around the axis of the pendulum.

Try running this model with the plate at an initial angle of 1° to the plane of oscillation, then simulate with an initial angle of 90°.

This model is ideal for use in the engineering classroom to teach fundamental concepts.
