The present study is based on the transverse vibration analogy of a string subjected to a travelling mass. The string is considered to be fixed at their both ends. The responses of the string due to the dynamic behavior of the travelling mass are determined using a numerical approach i.e. Green’s function. A Finite Element Model (FEM) has been developed to authenticate the numerical approach. For the responses analysis of the string, numerical example has been illustrated to study the behavior of the string due to the travelling mass and to check the convergence of the two proposed analogies (Green’s function and FEM). The complete analysis has been performed at constant travelling speed and different masses. The two approaches converge well and the Green’s function methodology found to be suitable one.
