Asked by: Ted Pittman
Subject: Pendulum testing
Question: To mathematical Gyronauts,

What math would you use to predict the performance of a Pendulum Test when the driving force is oscillating or pulsing horizontally?

Everything I've read assumes a steady horizontal force.

If not a horizontal force, then what? 1+0= 1 works for me.

 Research indicates a better testing method is to propel a boat in water like Roy Thornson.
