Longitudinal vibration of a slender bar with nonuniform characteristics in presence of a magnetic field

  • 44 Accesses


In the present article the magnetic influence on the free vibrations of a slender bar with characteristics slightly different from those of a uniform one has been discussed. It presents a simple approximate solution to this problem. Moreover the frequency equation has been derived.
