Sometimes we come across interesting images that stand out from the majority as we are going through and making classifications.
The frame shown above is an example frame from shortly after the initial strike. What we are seeing here is that the initial wave traveling across the steelpan has seemingly not yet finished it’s initial crossing.
Part of what we are very interested in learning more about with this project is how mechanical energy is transferred from one note on the pan that was struck with a mallet to other neighboring notes. We are very interested in the time shortly after the strike – and it is neat to be able to capture the initial wave as it spreads across the steelpan.
Keep going with the classifications! We really appreciate all the help.
