This web site contains analyses and animations of some simple vibrating systems. The intent is to provide the student with a visual representation of the effects various parameters have on the vibration of basic spring and mass systems. The site considers damped and undamped oscillation, free and forced vibration, and one- and two-degree of freedom systems.
· Forced Vibration of a Single Degree of Freedom System
· Forced Vibration of a Two Degree of Freedom System
· Vibration in a Two Degree of Freedom System with a Tuned Mass Damper (TMD)
