Document Type: Journal Paper


Natural modes and frequencies of structural systems are determined by energy method using mode functions applicable to complete system, or to subsystem thereof, that are synthesized from admissible mode functions selected for component members of system; synthesis is accomplished by using equations of constraint that follow from conditions of force equilibrium and deflection compatibility at junctions.
