Free flexural vibrations of masonry beam-columns

Maria Girardi and Massimiliano Lucchesi

Vol. 5 (2010), No. 1, 143–159
Abstract

We present an analytical study of the free transverse vibrations of masonry beam-columns, focusing on the role of the material’s inability to sustain traction in modifying the dynamic behavior of such structures. In particular, for periodic oscillations, an analytical method is presented for obtaining an explicit relation between the fundamental frequency of the beam and the displacement amplitude.
