Chapters 6 analyzed free vibration of the multiple elastically connected beam system of Reddy-Bickford’s type on an elastic foundation under the influence of axial forces with the comparison of the frequency and stability theoretical research for all four types of the beam’s theory. Analytical solutions for the natural frequencies and the critical buckling forces are determined by the trigonometric method and verified numerically as in case in the previous chapter. In the case of the Reddy-Bickford’s model, it is shown that the natural frequency provides the best solution approximation.
