Abstract

Using simple beam theory, solutions are given for the vibration of beams having rectangular cross section with (a) linear depth and any power width variation, (b) quadratic depth and any power width variation, (c) cubic depth and any power width variation, and (d) constant depth and exponential width variation. Beams of elliptical and circular cross section are also investigated. Several cases of cantilever beams are given in detail. The vibration of compound beams is investigated. Several cases of free double wedges with various width variations are discussed.
