The use of experimental modal analysis to obtain the dynamic mechanical properties of spirally wound paper tubes is investigated. Based on experimentally measured natural frequencies in the free-free mode of transverse vibration, tube flexural stiffness properties are predicted using three beam theories: Euler-Bernoulli beam theory, Timoshenko beam theory for isotropic materials, and Timoshenko beam theory for anisotropic materials.
