Homework Help: Holzer's method

  1. Dec 13, 2005 #1
    Hi!
    How to use Holzer's method to verify that a given natural frequency of a torsional vibration system should have 2 node?

    Is that when I construct the table and do the iteration, I will finally find that there are 2 sign changes of the "theta"? Therefore, we can conlcude that?

    Could you elaborate on the system please.

    If I am correct, a shaft with N discs would have N-1 nodes.
