The behavior of a system comprised of two parallel plates coupled by a discrete, linear spring and damper is studied. Classical Modal Analysis (CMA) is used to illustrate this behavior, while specifically observing the effects of varying the stiffness and damping ratio of the coupling elements. Conditions under which the coupling may be approximated as rigid are identified. Additionally, conditions under which the coupling displacement reaches its maximum and minimum values are identified. This work also lays the groundwork for extending Asymptotic Modal Analysis (AMA) to systems with discrete, elastic, and dissipative coupling.
