A string simulation modeller was explored through a C++ program using the Runge Kutta solver method. ABove sketches were done using based java. Thanks to Ben Fry and Casey Reas.

Initial particle spring classes implemented by Simon Greenwold, thank you- and more to come from the class Simon taught at Yale/Architecture in Fall2003 and Spring 2004

Reworked catenary project in processing with modeling capabilities by Axel Kilian Spring 2004.

It served as starting point and sketching platform for research workshop on hanging string models co taught by John Ochsendorf, Axel Kilian, Eric Demaine, Mark Demaine, Barb Cuttler and support by Simon Greenwold.
A more robust C++ version was developed during the workshop
