Another Pandulum (3d truss element)

Yalcin Kaymak, VDEh-betriebsforschungsinstitut

Pandulum model using 3d truss element.
initial position is from (0,0,0) to (0,2,10).
(0,2,10) end is pinned.
(0,0,0) end has 10kg mass.
gravity is applied in -z direction.

analitical solution is approximated very well:
period =sqrt(Length/gravity)

the model image shows the y displacement vs time.
