This is a PowerPoint lecture describing the solution of three progressively more complex vibrating string models, originally presented as a supplemental lecture to an undergraduate linear systems (ME211) class. PDF version here.
The following are simulations of the plucked string w/o damping, with damping, and with damping and an impulsive force
applied at x = 2L/3.
