Free vibrations of a linear structure with arbitrary support conditions


Journal Article

A method for the analysis of the free vibrations of a linear structure supported in an arbitrary way is presented based upon the use of the normal modes of the unsupported or unconstrained structure in a Rayleigh-Ritz analysis with the support or constraint conditions enforced by means of Lagrange multipliers. The advantages of such a procedure over more conventional methods are discussed. © 1971 by ASME.
