Cable and Pulleys AnimationThe goal of this project is the efficient and stable simulation of cables under a wide range of situations and, specially, under a wide range of tensions.
When the cable tension is high, most methodologies suffer from numerical instability due to high frequency oscillation.
With this approach the dynamics of the cable is split into two models which allow to detect and prevent instabilities before they occur.
