A spring-mass-damping system, initially at rest, is subjected to a step force change F acting on the mass. Determine
the maximum deflection umax for the undamped case. Determine the displacement u at time t for two damping

The node locations are arbitrarily selected. The damping coefficient c is calculated as 2ξ sqrt(km) = 0.0 and 10
lb-sec/in for ξ = 0.0 and ξ = 0.5 respectively. A static solution is done at the first load step. The maximum...
