Abstract : A digital computer program, originally developed by George E. Fink, capable of determining the in-and/or out-of-plane vibration frequencies of a single plane piping system, using the basic transfer method, is modified and augmented by the writer. The program is modified to use the writer's method to reduce the amount of calculation and is augmented to use Marguerre and Uhrig's modifying frequency determinant method and Pestel and Mahrenholtz's remainder method for higher natural frequencies. An analysis is made of difficulties encountered with the original transfer method and utilizing the modified methods. The program accepts branched systems and non-still intermediate supports. A discussion and an explanation of how to use the program are included. (Author)
