Axially moving beam-typed structures are of technical importance and present in a wide class of engineering problem. In the present paper, natural frequencies of nonlinear planar vibration of axially moving beams are numerically investigated via the fast Fourier transform (FFT). The FFT is a computational tool for efficiently calculating the discrete Fourier transform of a series of data samples by means of digital computers. The governing equations of coupled planar of an axially moving beam are reduced to two nonlinear models of transverse vibration. Numerical schemes are respectively presented for the governing equations via the finite difference method under the simple support boundary condition. In this paper, time series of the discrete Fourier transform is defined as numerically solutions of three nonlinear governing equations, respectively. The standard FFT scheme is used to investigate the natural frequencies of nonlinear free transverse vibration of axially moving beams. The numerical results are compared with the first two natural frequencies of linear free transverse vibration of an axially moving beam. And results indicate that the effect of the nonlinear coefficient on the first natural frequencies of nonlinear free transverse vibration of axially moving beams. The numerical results also illustrate the three models predict qualitatively the same tendencies of the natural frequencies with the changing parameters.
