The development of high speed computing devices and the perfection of matrix methods has made it possible to perform quantitative analysis of the vibration characteristics of complex piping systems. Such analyses require the use of accurate input data, such as distributed mass and flexural rigidity. In this study experiment was compared with theory in a free-free beam configuration in order to assess the confidence that can be attached to values of flexural rigidity and mass distribution calculated from tabulated and actual dimensional and weight data. In addition, data was obtained to assess the damping characteristics.
