ABSTRACT
The spring mass damper can be built or represented on the computer instead of going to theworkshop to fabricate such system and its performance under various conditions can also beobserved without having to subject the real system to these conditions hence, you save materialsand money, since the system can be used countless times. Energy is also saved because suchsystem is more easily built on a computer than physically. Moreover, it may be very difficult tomeasure some outputs of some systems such as displacement but such values can be measuredwith ease through simulation.With this project, we aim to investigate the performance of a spring mass damper system, under various conditions, through modeling, without having to subject the real system to theseconditions. The results are obtained in visual forms so that they can be readily interpreted anddiscussed.
