Dynamic Analysis of Systems with Distributed Properties

  • Mario Paz


The dynamic analysis of structures, modeled as lumped parameter systems with discrete coordinates, was presented in Part I for single degree-of-freedom systems and in Parts II and III for multidegree-of-freedom systems. Modeling structures with discrete coordinates provides a practical approach for the analysis of structures subjected to dynamic loads. However, the results obtained from these discrete models can only give approximate solutions to the actual behavior of dynamic systems which have continuous distributed properties and, consequently, an infinite number of degrees of freedom.
