1 Vibrating String Introduction In the following example you compute the natural frequencies of a pretensioned string using the 2D Truss interface. This is an example of stress stiffening ; in fact the transverse stiffness of truss elements is directly proportional to the tensile force. Strings made of piano wire have an extremely high yield limit, thus enabling a wide range of pretension forces. The results are compared with the analytical solution. Model Definition The finite element idealization will consist of a single line. The diameter of the wire is irrelevant for the solution of this particular problem, but it must still be given. GEOMETRY String length, L = 0.5 m Cross section diameter 1.0 mm; A = mm 2 MATERIAL Young s modulus, E = 210 GPa Poisson s ratio, ν = 0.31 Mass density, ρ = 7850 kg/m 3 CONSTRAINTS Both ends of the wire are fixed. LOAD The wire is pretensioned to σ ni = 1520 MPa. Results and Discussion The analytical solution for the natural frequencies of the vibrating string is (Ref. 1) 2012 COMSOL 1 VIBRATING STRING
2 f k = k L σ ni ρ (1) The pretensioning stress σ ni in this example is tuned so that the first natural frequency will be Concert A; 440 Hz. In Table 1 the computed results are compared with the results from Equation 1. The agreement is very good. The accuracy will decrease with increasing complexity of the mode shape, since the possibility for the relatively coarse mesh to describe such a shape is limited. The mode shapes for the first three modes are shown in Figure 1 through Figure 3.

4 Figure 3: Third eigenmode. Notes About the COMSOL Implementation In this model the stresses are known in advance, so it is possible to use an initial stress condition. This is shown in the first study. In a general case, the prestress is given by some external loading, and is thus the result of a previous step in the solution. Such a study would consist of two steps: One stationary step for computing the prestressed state, and one step for the eigenfrequency. The special study type Prestressed Analysis, Eigenfrequency can be used to set up such a sequence. This is shown in the second study in this example. Since an unstressed membrane has no stiffness in the transverse direction, it will generally be difficult to get an analysis to converge without taking special measures. One such method is shown in the second study: A spring foundation is added during initial loading, and is then removed. You must switch on geometrical nonlinearity in the study in order to capture effects of prestress. This is done automatically when a study of the type Prestressed Analysis, Eigenfrequency is used. 4 VIBRATING STRING 2012 COMSOL
