Read the description of the second lab assignment. Here you will find a film clip of the
collapse of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. You will also find two models that attempt to describe the motion
of the bridge. Although our lab shall be concerned with the simpler forced oscillation models of the
spring-mass and spring-dashpot-mass systems, at least you will get a feel for how these models can be
extended into more realistic models of an oscillating bridge.
