Vibration problems of beams with time-dependent boundary conditions are solved by the method of Laplace transforms. The problems treated include the simply supported, cantilevered, and fixed beams carrying a single arbitrarily placed mass; two equal masses symmetrically placed on a simply supported or fixed-end beam and a beam carrying a mass at the center and two equal masses at tips, striking a spring.
