VM79: Transient Response of a Bilinear Spring Assembly Overview Reference: W. T. Thomson, Vibration Theory and Applications, 2nd Printing, Prentice-Hall, Inc., Englewood Cliffs, NJ, 1965, pg. 150, fig. 5.6-1. Analysis Type(s): Reduced Transient Dynamic Analysis (ANTYPE = 4) Element Type(s): Combination Elements (COMBIN40) Gap Condition (GP) Input Listing: vm79.dat Test Case A mass supported on a nonlinear spring is subjected to an impulsive force F(t) and thereafter undergoes free vibration. The spring stiffness is characterized by the force-deflection curve shown below. Determine the maximum deflection ymax of the mass. Compare results with those of VM74.
