Modeling Scenario

##### 3-031-SpringCost-ModelingScenario

We assume students are familiar with overdamping and underdamping of a spring-mass-dashpot system. Students will apply this knowledge to model the interplay between spring constant, tolerance, and cost.Modeling Scenario

##### 5-040-TunedMassDampers-PartII-ModelingScenario

Studentsbuild mathematical models to mitigate dangerous swaying in structures using structural improvements called Tuned Mass Dampers (TMD). We model the motion of the original structure as a spring-mass-dashpot with stiffness replacing spring...Modeling Scenario

##### 5-040-TunedMassDamper-Part-I-Modeling Scenario

We offer an opportunity to build mathematical models to mitigate dangerous displacements in structures using structural improvements called Tuned Mass Dampers. We model the motion of the original structure as a spring-mass-dashpot system.Potential Scenario

##### 2016-Pennell-Avitabile-White-Engineering Applications Differential Equations

General discussion of an engineering based differential equations course with examples from RC Circuit, mass spring dashpot.Modeling Scenario

##### 3-040-FirstPassageTime-ModelingScenario

We apply the notions of dampedness to second order, linear, constant coefficient, homogeneous differential equations used to model a spring mass dashpot system and introduce the notion of first passage time through 0 value with several applications.Modeling Scenario

##### 3-034-CarSuspension-ModelingScenario

We examine the spring-mass-dashpot that is part of a car suspension, how the ride is related to parameter values, and the effect of changing the angle of installation. We model a ``quarter car'', meaning a single wheel.Modeling Scenario

##### 3-105-FrequencyResponse-ModelingScenario

We describe the frequency response to a second order differential equation with a driving function as the maximum steady state solution amplitude and perform some analyses in this regard.Modeling Scenario

##### 4-050-ResonanceBeats-ModelingScenario

We study what can happen when a pure oscillator (no damper) is driven by a forced vibration function which has the same or close to the same natural frequency as the system it is driving.Modeling Scenario

##### 4-035-ParEstSteadyState-ModelingScenario

Students estimate parameters in a second order, linear, ordinary differential equations through analysis of the steady state solution. By applying a driver we can collect data in terms of the parameters and estimate these parametersModeling Scenario

##### 3-030-SecondOrderIntro-ModelingScenario

We outline the solution strategies involved in solving second-order, linear, constant coefficient ordinary differential equations, both homogeneous and nonhomogeneous and offer many application and modeling activities.Modeling Scenario

##### 3-102-SpringMassDamped-ModelingScenario

Students build a model based on their perceptions of what the solution should look like for a simple spring mass system with damping.Modeling Scenario

##### 3-010-EnergyInSpringMassSystem-ModlingScenario

As a way to synthesize the effects of damping and forcing terms, this activity is meant to encourage students to explore how different forcing terms will change the total energy in a mass-spring system.Article or Presentation

##### 2020-TeachingModule-SpringDesignToMeetSpecsAtMinimumCosts

We discuss a Modeling Scenario in which students are asked to design a spring mass system at minimum costs give relative costs of features of the spring.Modeling Scenario

##### 5-014-TwoSpringMass-ModelingScenario

We ask students to build a Free Body Diagram for a vertical two mass situation in which the two masses are held fixed at the tip and at the bottom. The mass holds the springs together at the join of the two springs in between.Modeling Scenario
