The classical modal analysis is applied to derive the analytical solution and to obtain the free vibration response of damped axially moving wire in this paper. The corresponding eigenvalues, eigenfunctions, and orthogonal relationship are presented. The orthogonality property and closed-form solution of free vibration response with damping are the main contributions of this study. In addition, the analytical modal analysis, with damping factor removed, shows agreement with those in existing research literature of moving wire without damping. The specific relevance of this general solution is discussed with respect to the moving wire in a slurry wiresaw. The theoretical definition of the damping factor of the slurry wiresaw system is also provided.
