In the present investigation, efforts have been made to find effect material on cantilever beam under vibration. Specimens were modelled and analysed using FEM package (Abacus). Analysis was done by setting maximum frequency value as 60 Hz. It was found that a cantilever beam attains different modes of vibration. For mode-I of vibration the value of ‘strain energy’ and ‘deflection of beam’ along the cantilever beam from fixed end towards free end were obtained and tabulated. Aluminium, Copper and Steel were selected as three different materials for analysis. Numerical data obtained from FEM analysis were further tabulated and plotted for further useful analysis. Using numerical techniques, polynomial equations were also developed so that intermediate data can be determined.
