This brief note examines the lumped dynamic modeling of two simple structural systems: 3D-printed cantilevers, and circular aluminum panels. In each case a set of stiffness and natural frequency measurements are made based on simple experiments, with a view to examining effective mass, and a comparison is made with the basic theory.
