The configuration of read/write head designs in floppy disk drive units is of import as some designs witness vibration phenomena which lead to signal loss and excessive wearing of the disk media. This paper presents finite element modeling, and results thereof of a read/write head floppy disk system in free vibration. The objective of this work, of which this study marks but the beginning, is to determine the design parameters of read/write head support structure which will reduce the vibration phenomena.
