Abstract: Near-infrared images are used to derive the gravitational potentials in three ringed barred disk galaxies: NGC 1433, 3081, and 6300. A sticky-particle dynamics code is used to evolve a cloud-particle disk in these potentials, and the resulting gaseous morphologies are compared with the observed strutures of the galaxies to deduce the bar pattern speed.
