Free vibrations of imperfect cantilever bars under self-weight loading


Journal Article

This brief study examines the relationship between the natural frequency of small oscillations and the length of vertical cantilever struts in a gravitational field. The analysis uses a Rayleigh approach and includes post-buckled equilibrium states and emphasizes the influence of initial imperfections. © 1987, Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
