A closed form expression for the forced response of a combined dynamical system to arbitrary loads is derived. The system consists of a linear undamped oscillator attached to a cantilevered beam. Modal analysis using the exact normal modes of the combined system and the associated orthogonality relation, results in uncoupled differential equations for the unknown functions of time.
