The present work emphasizes the dynamic response of double cracked cantilever beam subjected to a traversing mass. The cracks are located at different positions of the beam with random crack depths. The response of the damaged structure has been evaluated employing a numerical procedure of Runge-Kuuta method. The effects of crack depth, traversing mass, traversing speed and crack location on the response of the structure are studied. Finite element analysis (FEA) using the commercial ANSYS 15 has been presented to validate the adopted numerical method.
