TORSIONAL VIBRATION studies of simple mechanical systems are usually handled by methods which, while not difficult, often require the expenditure of considerable time when done by hand. The use of a digital computer shortens the time considerably. One method frequently used is the Holzer table calculations1 resulting in the determination of the natural frequencies of the system. Another method is a matrix solution of the differential equations of the system.
