The transfer matrix method is well-known and extensively used for finding solutions in vibration problems. At the final stage of this method natural frequencies are obtained by a trial and error search procedure. In this paper authors presented the method which needed only a few division number to yield an accurate solution and the most effective method to get an approximate solution in the case of beam vibrations. The methods which were presented by authors could be applied for the beam with nonuniform section and uniformly distributed load, and the values of numerical calculations by these methods have just agreed with those of experiments.
