Chapter 5 analyzed free vibration of the multiple elastically connected beams of Timoshenko’s type on an elastic foundation under the influence of axial forces. Analytical solutions for the natural frequencies and the critical buckling forces are determined by the trigonometric method and verified numerically. It is shown that the fundamental natural frequency in the first mode of the multiple beam system tends to the value of the natural frequency of the system with one beam resting on an elastic foundation with the tendency of increasing the number of connected beams with the same stiffness of the layers between.
