Presented in this investigation is the derivation of the governing differential equation for Free Vibration of Continuous Beam-Column on Elastic Foundation subjected to axial force. The case of continuous Beam-Column on Elastic Foundation without the effect of axial force is also investigated. The dynamic three-moment equation has been drived based on the solution of the governing differential equations. Tables and Curves, produced by use of computer, are presented to show the effect of axial force, elastic foundation, and both on the Free Vibration of Beam-Column on Elastic Foundation.
