This paper examines simple bounds on the displacement response of linear oscillatory multiple degree of freeodm systems. Both the free and steady state forced responses are considered. The effect of mode coupling due to viscous damping is examined. The bounds are derived and stated in terms of the physical parameters of the structure and its inputs. Simple examples are given to illustrate the bounds and to compare the bounds developed here with previously published results.
