Free Vibrational Analysis of Non-uniform Double Eulerbernoulli Beams on a Winkler Foundation Using Laplace Differential Transform Method
Keywords:Boundary Conditions, Double Beam, Euler-Bernoulli Beam, Free Vibration, Natural Frequency, Winkler Foundation, LDTM.
In this study, the free vibrational analysis of non-uniform Euler-Bernoulli double beams on a Winkler foundation under simply supported and fixed-fixed boundary conditions is examined. The governing equation is solved using the Laplace Differential Transform Method, the combined form of the Laplace transform and differential transform technique (DTM). The accuracy of the method used is demonstrated by comparing the natural frequencies obtained using LDTM with previously published results available in the literature. It is discovered that for non-uniform double Euler-Bernoulli beams on a Winkler foundation with fixed-fixed end conditions, the natural frequencies are higher than those of simply supported end conditions. It is also observed that as the non-uniformity of the cross section of the beam increases, the natural frequencies reduce. Hence, it is suggested that the non-uniformity of the cross-section of the beam for a simply supported end condition be between 0 and less than 0.8. While the fixed-fixed end condition should have a value between 0 and 0.95.
