Abstract

This research examines the effects of moving loads on viscously damped axial force Rayleigh beam. The authors especially tried to find the effect of the moving mass and moving force in connection with the length of the span of a Rayleigh beam. The authors also examined the effect of the lengths of the beam and of the load. It was observed that as mass of the moving load increases the deflection along the length of the beam also increases. It was further observed that the deflection of the moving mass is greater than that of the moving force.
