Abstract : The equation of motion for the forced transverse vibration of a slender elastic beam with viscous damping is programmed for computer solution. The method of variation of parameters is used in the numerical solution of the equation of motion, giving the deflections due to each transverse mode of vibration. Stresses within the beam can be calculated in order to verify its structural integrity. The report is published to provide a handy and detailed solution to the forced vibration problem; however no priority in method of solution is claimed. The computer program is written in FORTRAN H for use on any IBM 360 computer. (Author)
