Hi guys, I need to find the natural frequencies of a series of pressure rakes. We have a numerical model, but I'd like to confirm with a hand calculation. I would like to model the pressure rakes as a cantilevered beam with varying cross section (i.e. as each tube "stops" the beam decreases in area).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I looked on Ohiolink for journal articles and through Timoshenko'sVibration Problems in Engineeringbut can't come up with anything. If anyone has an article, or a link somewhere I would appreciate it. Thansk,
