Scaling – 2 6. Natural Frequency Let’s go over the cantilever beam analysis in section 5 again, but with a weight load at the end of the cantilever shown in Figure 3. Assume the width of the beam is b and the thickness of the beam is h . Figure 3. A cantilever beam with a concentrated load at the end The maximum deflection at the free end is EI FL y L 3 3 = (33) And the cross-sectional area moment of inertia is I = bh 3 /12 (34) Therefore, y L = MgL 3 3 E ( bh 3 /12) (35) The deflection scales as y L , i y L , R = M i gL i 3 3 E i ( b i h i 3 /12) M R gL R 3 3 E R ( b R h R 3 /12) = s i 3 s i 3 s i 4 = s i 2 (36) And the slope scales as F = Mg y L h b L

y L , i / L i y L , R / L R = M i gL i 2 3 E i ( b i h i 3 /12) M R gL R 2 3 E R ( b R h R 3 /12) = s i 3 s i 2 s i 4 = s i 1 (37) Now we would like to consider the bending vibration of such cantilever beam. Recall the Newton’s law for free vibration for a damped mass-spring damping system shown in Figure 4. Figure 4 A damped mass-spring system K (N/m) is the spring constant and R (Ns/m) is the damping constant. We have, 0 2 2 = + + Κξ δτ δξ Ρ τ δ ξ δ Μ (38) For harmonic motion x(t)= x m e i ϖ t , where ϖ is the circular frequency, and x m is the maximum displacement. Therefore, 0 2 = + + - τ ι μ τ ι μ τ ι μ ε Κξ ιε Ρξ ε Μξ ϖ ϖ ϖ ϖ ϖ (39) If R=0 , then M K o = = ϖ ϖ (40) Here ϖ ο is defined as the natural circular frequency. The natural frequency is then defined as M K f o π ϖ π 2 1 2 1 = = (41) So, the natural frequency scales as x

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
