A document aimed mainly at harpists, explaining in more detail the physics behind the choice of gut, nylon and fluorocarbon strings:

The python code used to generate the figures shown in this article can be accessed here.

Large versions of the string design charts developed in Section 7.2 for monofilament strings of nylon, fluorocarbon and natural gut, suitable for printing and using for practical string selection:

The python code used to generate these design charts, and to replicate some of the case studies included in Section 7.2 and in the referenced paper “Choosing strings for plucked musical instruments”, can be accessed here.
