Max wind speed: 0.50 Wavelength (time steps per cycle): 350 Rotational k: .05
Use the sliders to change the model's parameters and look for different types of resonance. You'll find that the tree quickly stops acting like a tree but does show several interesting types of chaotic and periodic motion.
Each circle represents a base unit of a fractal. The lines connecting these circles have restoring forces both in the angular and lengthwise directions. For each time step, the fractal uses a recursive
tick() function to update physics at every node and a recursive
draw() function to re-render the fractal. The wind's force is given by a
