Abstract
The following exercise observes the lateral modes of vibration of a thin steel cantilever specimen.Using accurate geometric and material properties, the natural frequency response for the cantileverbeam can be calculated. For the steel beam used in the experiment, the first natural response wasapproximately 8.5 Hz. The experimental error experienced at low frequencies was as much as 50%,however at high frequencies, the error was only 5%.
