Abstract:

The free vibrations of a slender bar with characteristics slightly different from those of a uniform one is discussed. A simple approximate solution to this problem is presented. Results from experiments conducted with a bar of variable cross-section in free -free flexural vibrations indicate that the theory adequately predicts resonant frequencies and nodal locations.
