Re: hello? -help with a spinning bucket!
hehe.. you couldn't be more clear than that! :-)
I have now explored the effect of decreasing young's modulus to increase the time-step, to get results faster. here is a link to a video, there are two more as well..: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Za0guWwcQnk
there is still funky stuf happening, I don't see the behavior I am expecting, not yet, but this is at least a lot better than anything I got earlier :-)
I think I will have to re-do these simulations with larger numbers of particles, and for longer time periods, and with a young's modulus closer to what it is in reality.
However, it is looking like the simulation I will need to do to check whether my ideas will work might take days of computer time.. (laptop time). it might be better at that point, (remembering that I will have to do maybe 10's of major simulations to convince myself that I have really understood how to use the program) to just go ahead and get the machine-shop to build the experimental apparatus (a days worth of work for them at most), to test the idea..
how long do you folks usually run your simulations for?

that's a hell of a lot
of iterations! for one second! is it really necessary?
Yes it is. But if you decrease stiffness, dt will be higher.
