The natural frequencies and normal modes of a uniform beam depend upon support conditions. The effect of translation and rotation springs at the base is examined in this presentation. This is done in terms of non-dimensional variables and parameters to enhance the utility of the results. The paper also develops the mode participation and dynamic load factors for subsequent application.
