This paper presents an analytical study on the dynamic characteristics of castellated beams. The study focuses on the effect of web shear on the free vibration frequencies of castellated beams. By using the Hamilton's principle, a simple closed-form solution for determining the free vibration frequencies of simply supported castellated beams is developed. The results show that the shear effect on the free vibration frequencies increases with the cross-sectional area and distance between the centroids of the two tee sections of castellated beams, but decreases with respect to increasing web thickness or increasing beam length. The shear effect is also found to be greater in higher vibration modes.
