The paper studies the harmonic response of a cantilever beam with offset support. To start with a SDOF mode! is used followed by an FE model & experiments. It is found that the experimental values deviate from the SDOF model but are close to the FF model. Further by modifying the contact parameter of the FF model (support stiffness), the agreement can be made closer. Thus the experiment becomes an excellent way to perfect a numerical model.
