Abstract : The General Bending Response Program (GBRP), a digital computer program package for ship vibration analysis, has been augmented to handle calculations of the time response of beam systems under certain types of transient excitation. These excitations are characterized by the fact that their Fourier transforms from the time to the frequency domain can be represented analytically. The method is used to calculate the response of a mass-spring-damper system to a rectangular impulse and of a nonuniform beam to an exponential impulse. A description of the additional data and options required for running problems is included. (Author)
