PushMePullMe - interactive real time physics

PushMePullMe software is part of an educational project that aims at developing a set of tools and digital documents to ease and enrich the process of teaching about structural mechanics, engineering and architecture


The physics engine is able to compute complete stress-field and displacements, including rigid body motion, for cables, bars and beam elements in real time.
The solver computes geometric non-linarites inherently since equilibrium position is always computed on the current deformed shape allowing form finding and shape optimization.

the application can be accessed at :
(download latest java plug in and make sure you do not block the application when security warnings are displayed)

Dynamic Relaxation (shape optimization)
(put gravity slider in the legend to the very right and hit a couple of times the relax button)
