Abstract
It is the purpose of this paper to describe an investigation of the normal modes of lateral vibration of a free-free beam having variable stiffness and mass considering the effects of bending and shear deflections and rotary inertia, by mean of an electronic system. A practical engineering problem of this type is found in the vibrations of an aircraft wing, or, as in the case of this investigation, the normal modes of vibrations of a naval vessel for which data and solutions by other methods were readily accessible.
