N2 - In this paper analytical transient solutions of dynamic response of one-dimensional
systems with sudden change of foundation stiffness are derived. In more details,
cantilever dynamic response, expressed in terms of vertical displacement, is
extended to account for elastic foundation and then two cantilever solutions,
corresponding to beams clamped on left and right hand side, with different value of
Winkler constant are connected together by continuity conditions. The internal
forces, as the unknowns, can be introduced by the same values in both clamped
beam solutions and solved. Assumption about time variation of internal forces at the
section of discontinuity must be adopted and originally analytical solution will have
to include numerical procedure.
