Two Degree of freedom Damped free vibration

  1. Feb 18, 2004 #1
    I am trying to calculate the force and velocity of a primary and secondary suspension. I know the damping constant of the dampers and the spring constant of the springs. I see where an expression can be calculated where you input time and get x.

    I'm sorry, I don't understand.

    What exactly is your question?

    I am trying to solve a two degree of freedom mechanical translational problem. The system has two masses and a spring and damper arrangement uder each mass. I was given the spring constant, damping constant, and mass. I want to dtemine the force and velocity into the damper if it is allowed to stroke 1 inch.
