Fundamental natural frequency is an important parameter in structural dynamics analysis and applications. A number of simple formulas for the computation of the fundamental natural frequency of beam vibration under a variety of boundary conditions and loading are presented. Some are approximate formulas and some are exact. An estimate of the error is given for the approximate formulas whenever possible. The formulas presented here are simple enough that the fundamental frequency could be obtained by hand calculation without recourse to computers or finite element analysis. The formulas are demonstrated with nine worked out numerical examples.
