  1. 3-073-S-EarthQuake Part II

    06 Aug 2021 | | Contributor(s):: Tracy Weyand

    This modeling scenario considers a one-story building as a simple structure; the roof is modeled as a single point mass. Movement of the roof can be modeled similar to a mass-spring-damper system. In this activity, students will analyze motion of the roof under different damping and vibration...

  2. 2020-Shelton, Therese - Remote Teaching Module - Car Suspensions

    28 Jul 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Therese Shelton

    In this modeling activity, students examine the spring-mass-dashpot that is part of a car suspension. We model a "quarter car'', meaning a single wheel, and compare effects of different masses, spring constants, damping coefficients, and the angle at which the assembly is installed....
