A study of the natural vibraion of Timoshenko beam with a laminar tear is presented. An analytic model, based on the transverse and longitudinal vibration of beams is employed to determine the natural frequencies. A specific example are given to show the effects of rotary inertia, and shear deformation on the natural frequencies of the beam with a laminar tear. the variations of matural frequencies of beam with the changes of size and location of laminar tear are plotted for several thickness ratio.
