Forced Vibration on a Cantilever Beam

  1. Mar 3, 2005 #1
    If a cantilever beam is subject to forced vibration (from a shaker at fixed end), what will the effect be of placing a mass at a)nodes and b)between nodes?
    I presume that as there is no displacement from the normal at the nodes, the mass will have little effect, but what about between the nodes?

    Any textbook, or website suggestions also greatfully received!
