The transfer matrix method has been extensively used to analyze the vibration problem. The final stage in this method is to find out solutions which make the frequency determinant zero. However, the frequency determinant includes the exponential terms and it causes instability to calculation and increases error. Recently the frontal transfer matrix method was suggested by Okada to heighten stability and effectivity in calculation. This paper applied the frontal transfer method to both the beam and torsional system, and confirmed stability and effectivity in comparsion with the transfer matrix method and the Holzer method.
