Transverse vibrationsare the vibrations in which the element moves to and fro in a direction perpendicular to the direction of the advance of the wave. In real life aero-planes, missiles, rockets, space vehicles, satellites, submarines etc. are modeled as free–free mechanical systems. The main purpose of this paper is to suggest a very low cost experimental setup on continuous systems. The proposed setup is suitable for the laboratory experiment. In this paper a simple low cost demonstration experiment is performed using common apparatus in order to compare theoretical, numerical and practical profile of a free-free thin spring steel beam (950x25x6 mm) and to determine its value of Young’s modulus (E) analytically. Finally theoretical, analytical and practical results are compared.
