Abstract
A cantilever beam force transducer was modelled as a massless elastic section at the base with the remaining section of the beam rigid and having mass. Computer programs were written to simulate free or forced, damped or undamped vibrations of the beam. Good agreement was found between predicted and experimental frequencies of undamped free vibration for two different beams. After further verification, the computer programs can be used to determine beam configurations, viscous damping factors, and loading rates which will reduce unwanted oscillations of the transducer element.
