Image solution for clamped finite beams

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


An image solution for the forced response of a clamped finite beam is developed. The finite beam is replaced by an infinite beam under spatially periodic excitation and periodic support reactions. The response is then found by a Fourier transform approach, making use of the periodicity. An explicit expression is found, using the Poisson sum formula. The aim is to describe the potential of using the image method for clamped structural acoustic and vibration problems.
