Cartoon Physics - The Peer Review Process
  • Description

    The Engineers didn't like the buckling model I used, so this is an update



    Sudden failure leads to this... Or this.... Or this.... Which then leads to one of these cases: Imagine a Coyote&Roadrunner-like "TWANG!" sound here. 8-story column pinned at upper and lower ends (black dots) where the column joins the upper and lower sections Sudden release of elastic forces in members after fracture strightens them a bit, misaligns the ends, and also imparts some turning moment, enhancing the mis-alignment. Broken ends fall past each other (real life is 3D, remember!) Essentially zero support anywhere between upper pin and lower pin.

    As an update for those of you who refuse to ignore me: one idiot has completely ignored my efforts, and another one chooses to critique my art rather than discuss the physics.

    So just about the response I was expecting.

    I'm not sure if that means I've won, or if the idiots have.

    Nice model! Deep down, I think the "Twang" Sound effect occurs more often in my life than I realize.

    Oh things happen.
