This paper considers lumped-mass structures where each mass in the structure has a single degree of freedom. Specifically, we analyze the zeros and relative degree of the single-input single-output (SISO) transfer function from the force applied to an arbitrary mass to the position, velocity, or acceleration of another mass.
