Homework Prob. 5.1
Consider the three-DOF system shown below whose motion is described by the absolute
generalized coordinates x1 , x 2 and x 3 , where x1 = x 2 = x 3 = 0 when the springs are

b) Determine the characteristic equation for the system using the solution form of:
x = X ei"t . ! c) Divide the above characteristic equation by k 3 and rewrite the characteristic
equation in terms of: µ = m" 2 / k . Note that this characteristic equation is
independent of m and k (all coefficients in the characteristic equation have
d) Use a nume! cal method to determine numerical values for the three roots of the
characteristic equation above. (You may use the Matlab function “roots” as
detailed in the solution of several lecture examples or any other means available.)
From these, write down the three natural frequencies "1, " 2 and " 3 in terms of
m and k.

three modes to the response. !

Homework Prob. 5.2
Identical particles 1 and 2 (each of mass m) are connected by a spring of stiffness k. A
massless bumper is attached to the right side of particle 2 with a spring of stiffness 2k. A
third particle (also of mass m) approaches the bumper with a speed of v, and on contact,
sticks to the bumper at t = 0. After sticking (t ≥ 0), the absolute generalized coordinates
x1 , x 2 and x 3 are to be used to describe the motion of the system, where
x1 = x 2 = x 3 = 0 when the springs are unstretched. Prior to sticking, particles 1 and 2 are
stationary, and all springs are unstretched.

b) Show that the stiffness matrix is singular (and therefore, the system has a rigid
! body mode).
c) Set up the characteristic equation and determine the three natural frequencies.
d) Find the three modal vectors X (i ) (i = 1, 2, 3) for the problem. Mass normalize ˜ (i )
