Hello engineer's community !!

I got a problem. If i got a truss frame with 2 bars and an initial nodal displacement for the common node , then how can i calculate the velocity of the oscilation as function of time ? (the 2 bars have different length , same elasticity modulus , same density and different angle with the horizontal line and they are connected to a common node as i said YMQm-1584216453565.jpg)

I would be glad if you help me !

Have you checked various lectures on this topic available from NPTEL?

This appears to be a straightforward civil engineering problem. Must be available in text books or the internet.
