Abstract : Two papers are presented which deal primarily with the effect of position of concentrated mass on response of components and systems. In the first paper the response of uniform clampedfree and hinged-hinged Bernoulli-Euler beams to step velocity ground shock is investigated. Weightless beams carrying concentrated masses are also analyzed to determine the best position for a minimum number of masses in order to match the uniform beam response at low frequencies. In the second paper, the mobility of a uniform bar is presented and compared with that of certain mass and spring systems. It is demonstrated that the mobility of the uniform bar can be matched to a limited extent by certain mass and spring combinations. In subsequent work, it is anticipated that the mobility or impedance behavior will be related to the shock response. (Author)
