The natural frequencies of a two-layer beam with an elastic interface are investigated. Each beam is modeled by the Timoshenko kinematics, and the interface coupling is linear in both normal and tangential directions. Attention is focused on the shear deformation, axial and rotational inertia, and interface normal stiffness. The dependence of the natural frequencies on these mechanical characteristics is investigated by solving the associated eigenvalue problem. The convergence of the solution toward that of a simplified problem obtained by neglecting axial and rotational inertia, shear deformations and by considering interface perfect adherence in the normal direction, is studied. Various boundary conditions are investigated to extend the generality of the proposed results.
