Convolution Integral Solution of Linear Spring-Mass-Damper Vibration System - A Versatile Tool

Abstract

The convolution (Duhamel) integral solution technique, for dynamic response of forced linear spring-mass-damper systems, has been difficult to present to engineering students. In a vein of alleviation, a graphical interpretation for this technique has been presented. The technique is briefly reviewed below. To highlight its usefulness in instruction and research, its applications to some vibration problems, in the order of increasing complexity, are also presented.
