This paper presents the numerical results of Vibration analysis of a cantilever beam with load at the tip and simply supported beam with the center load. Modal analysis of a cantilever beam and simply supported beam were carried out in ANSYS for different materials. The results were compared and it was found that for the same cross-section and for both configurations (i.e. cantilever and simply supported) structural steel gives higher natural frequencies.
