This provides some nice graphical displays of wave motion, although this is a common demo. Contains a good description to go along with the demo.

Technical Remarks:

Although users have a few choices as to the initial conditions, there isn't any interactivity offered by these applets. Furthermore, there are essentially no controls (such as the ability to start and stop the simulation) provided.
