Palmieri, Paolo (2007) Galileo’s Experiments with Pendulums: Then and Now. In:  &HPS1: Integrated History and Philosophy of Science 1.
To explore Galileo’s innovative methodology, I have repeated most of his path-breaking experiments with pendulums; I have investigated the robustness of pendulum effects, otherwise difficult to capture, with computer simulations; and I have repeated crucial calculations done by Galileo. In this paper, I will relate the discoveries that I made, and emphasize their significance for our understanding of Galileo’s innovative methodology.
