  2. Understanding Natural Frequency: Masses on Rods

    29 Sep 2011 | Learning Objects | Contributor(s): Catherine Ellen French

    A common technique for analyzing structures is to treat them as lumped masses on a single rod, which simplifies the analysis. A single story building would then be modeled as a rod of the height of the structure with all of the weight of the structure located at the top of the rod. A...

  3. What are Earthquakes?

    10 Nov 2011 | Learning Objects | Contributor(s): Catherine Ellen French, NEES EOT
