|Free Vibration of SDOF Systems|
The vibration frequency of unforced spring-mass-damper systems depends on their mass, stiffness, and damping
values. The ensuing time-behavior of such systems also depends on their initial velocities and displacements.
To calculate the vibration frequency and time-behavior of an unforced spring-mass-damper system, enter the following values. (The default calculation is for an undamped spring-mass system, initially at rest but stretched 1 cm from its neutral position. Answers are rounded to 3 significant figures.)
