**Fundamental Frequency of the Lateral Vibration of a Shaft carrying one mass using the Abaqus software and Analytical Solution**

**In this illustration, we intend to calculate the Fundamental Frequency of the Lateral Vibration of a Shaft carrying one mass using the Abaqus software and Analytical Solution**

**As you observe in the picture, the Model includes Beam and a Concentrated Mass which is located exactly on the center of the beam**

**The beam is one meter in length and the cross-section of the beam is a circle with a radius equal to 0.01 m. Meanwhile, a hinged support has been used on both sides of the beam**

**The purpose of this training is to calculate the fundamental frequency of the lateral vibration of the shaft with concentrated Mass using the Abaqus software and then compare the results obtained from the Abaqus software with those gained from the Analytical Solution. Actually, this problem will be solved twice, once using the Analytical Solution and for the second time, by using the Abaqus software**

**The natural frequency having been obtained from the Analytical Solution is 6.806 Hertz**

**The natural frequency having been obtained from the Abaqus software is equal to 6.806 Hertz**

**As you observe, the results obtained from the Analytical Solution are exactly concordant with those gained from the Abaqus software**
