Abstract: In this study, natural frequencies of the prismatical steel beams with various geometrical characteristics under the four different boundary conditions are determined using Artificial Neural Network (ANN) technique. In that way, an alternative efficient method is aimed to develop for the solution of the present problem, which provides avoiding loss of time for computing some necessary parameters. In this context, initially, first ten frequency parameters of the beam are found, where Bernoulli-Euler beam theory was adopted, and then natural frequencies are computed theoretically. With the aid of theoretically obtained results, the data sets are formed and ANN models are constructed. Here, 36 models are developed using primary 3 models. The results are found from these models by changing the number and properties of the neurons and input data. The handiness of the present models is examined by comparing the results of these models with theoretically obtained results. The effects of the number of neurons, input data and training function on the models are investigated. In addition, multiple regression models are developed with the data, and adjusted R-square is examined for determining the inefficient input parameters
