8.44 Derive a consistent-mass matrix for the system of Figure 8.9. Compare the natural frequencies of this system with those calculated with the lumped-mass matrix computed in Section 8.5. Solution: Using the vibration toolbox M = ρΑλ .6857 0 0 .7238 The natural frequencies are then ϖ 1 = .8311 1 l E r and w 1 =1.479 1 l E r These are higher than those predicted with the inconsistent mass matrix 8.45 Consider the two beam system of Figure P8.45. Use VTB8_1 to create a two- element, rod/beam element model and compute the first three natural frequencies. Use A = 0.0004 m 2 , I = 1.33 × 10 -8 m 4 , and the properties of aluminum. Assume that nodes 1 and 3 are clamped.
