Vibration animation for a violin

This page shows the measured eigenmodes of vibration for a violin made by Antonio Stradivari. For the sake of the animation, the amplitudes have been greatly exaggerated and the frequencies slowed down (slow-motion display).

Eigenmodes of Vibration of a Violin

Example: Violin by Antonio Stradivari (1712)

Another way to evaluate the eigenmodes of vibration is to plot the "modal activity".
