Abstract : Solutions of beam vibrations under moving loads are presented with a variety of support conditions. The purpose is to demonstrate how the support conditions will effect such beam motions. The solution method and mathematical background will be reviewed including the introduction of various support parameters. By slightly modifying an existing computational scheme, the desired results have been obtained and presented in several tables and plots showing the effect of support stiffness on beam motions.
