The one-DOF system consists of a spring, K, and mass, M. The load is a step function with a rise time, as shown.
The peak displacement of M from the finite element solution is compared to an analytical result. Figure E1.1 Response of Spring-Mass System Problem Sketch Material Properties

The magnitude and rise time of the force input were chosen arbitrarily. As outlined in W. T. Thomson, Vibration
Theory and Applications, for the system in Figure E1.1: “Response of Spring-Mass System Problem Sketch”, with
the force input shown, the peak response is given by: 1 x peak = (Fo / K ) 1 +
