Abstract

The problem of free vibrations of the Timoshenko beam model is here addressed. A careful analysis of the governing equations allows identifying that the vibration spectrum consists of two parts, separated by a transition frequency, which, depending on the applied boundary conditions, might be itself part of the spectrum. For both parts of the spectrum, the values of natural frequencies are computed and the expressions of eigenmodes are provided. This allows to acknowledge that the nature of vibration modes changes when moving across the transition frequency. Among all possible combination of end constraints which can be applied to single-span beams, the case of a simply supported beam is considered. These theoretical results can be used as benchmarks for assessing the correctness of the numerical values provided by several numerical techniques, e.g. traditional Lagrangian-based finite element models or the newly developed isogeometric approach.
