Static Lissajous Emulators (2D and 3D)

09/29/2010

This is a static Lissajous emulator in the sense that the waveform is obtained by combining 2 static sinusoidal waves with different frequencies. As a paranthesis, I will be preparing a dynamic version which will look just like the wave shape seen on a real oscilloscope. The file presented here has two different worksheets, the first one contains a classic 2D Lissajous figure and the second one has a 3D Lissajous pattern obtained from three different…

Basic 3D-2D (Perspective) Visualization

09/27/2010

The first two worksheets of this Excel workbook illustrate the creation and display of a rectangle by using a 2D scatter plot. They also show how to adjust its size, translate and rotate it. In the third worksheet a wire-frame cube is created. 3D-2D persective calculations are done. The cube can be zoomed and it can also be rotated in azimuth and altitude using simple macros. [sociallocker][/sociallocker]

Pendulum

09/20/2010

This is a basic pendulum model in Excel. Enjoy! [sociallocker][/sociallocker] This is an animated Excel model of a pendulum that you can download here. For fast modeling speed, please use older versions of excel (1997-2003). In the following section, background information about pendulums in general will be presented: Pendulum meaning, a simple pendulum definition, what is a pendulum? A pendulum is an oscillatory device made up of a concentrated weight…
