A fragmenting relativistic string is widely used for modeling particle production via quark–gluon strings formed in hadronic and nuclear inelastic interactions at high energies. In this note we focus on motion and fragmentation of a relativistic string with non-zero transverse separation of its ends and study this scenario as a possible mechanism for bringing anisotropy into the azimuthal angle distribution of produced particles in inelastic interactions of hadrons.
