Figure 1 shows a square frame model with no boundary conditions. The square frame is modeled with 4 bar elements for each arm. The natural frequencies of the lowest vibration modes except for the rigid-body modes are compared with the reference solutions given in the NAFEMS benchmarks. The vibration mode shapes are depicted in Figure 2.
