Question details

Part 1 (Optional): Derive the static equilibrium equation of each block, in terms of the axial displacements of x1 x2, and x3, under a static force F-100N. Assume that all blocks are rigid and all springs are linear. All springs have the same spring constants K-50N/cm. xi Part 2: The equilibrium equations of the system are derived as x,-x-2x,0 Find the displacement of each block, i.e. x1, x2 and x3, by the Gauss-Seidel methodPart 3: Find the solution by the successive over-relaxation (SOR) iterative method. Assume that the relaxation factor w-0.5 Note: You may use w-1 to debug you codes, which should be the same result from Part 2. Part 4: (optional) Study on convergence rate: You may compare the convergence rate by comparing the iteration number to achieve a specified accuracy, say 10-10, versus the relaxation factor ω. 0 < ω < 2.
