Abstract

This project was created to demonstrate the phenomenon known as self-synchronization using motor-driven, unbalanced rotors mounted on a spring-mounted base. A mechanism resembling that used by scientists who first studied the phenomenon was constructed and used to successfully reproduce the desired effect. Some modifications, including the removal of key components, were deemed necessary to obtain satisfactory results.
