% GOAl: Numerical solve the equation of motion of a damped system

% INPUT
% F : vector  -- size: [1x N] -- Time series representinf the time history of the load.
% M : scalar  -- size: [1 x 1] -- Modal mass
% K : scalar  -- size: [1 x 1] -- Modal stifness
% C : scalar  -- size: [1 x 1] -- Modal damping
% dt : scalar  -- size: [1 x 1] -- time step
% x0 : scalar  -- size: [1 x 1] -- initial displacement
% v0 : scalar  -- size: [1 x 1] -- initial velocity
%
% OUTPUT
% y: time history of the system response to the load
