The paper is concerned with the lowest vibration modes of multi-component rods and cylinders with alternating high contrast material properties of the components. It is demonstrated that these modes correspond to almost rigid body motions of the “stiffer” components. A general perturbation scheme is developed. At leading order polynomial frequency equations are derived, along with linear algebraic equations for the associated eigenforms. In addition, for multi-component rods, higher order corrections are also obtained. Examples of three- and five-component structures are presented, illustrating the efficiency of the proposed approach.
