RE: natural frequency portal frame

Usually the lowest non zero global mode is the most important, so in your case f=2.067 hz.

However, in the shear excitement of messing about with things you don't understand, you have forgotten to convert to rad/s, which is the units for f in the force equation.

Cheers
