—This paper deals with the analysis of collision vibration in continuous system excited by periodic displacement with arbitrary function. The analytical model is steady collision vibration of simply supported beam which collides with arbitrary location. In order to clarify the main resonance of the system, the resulting vibration is analyzed applying the Fourier series method for this system and an exact solution is proposed. Following the theoretical analysis, numerical calculation is performed and experiments are also carried out to verify the theoretical results.
