Density of division in finite element method does not affect only the accuracy of calculation, but also the necessary calculation time. This is directly influenced by the power of the used hardware, the efficiency of the algorithm used to assemble global stiffness and mass matrices and finally, by the method used to find eigenvalues of matrices for determination of eigenfrequencies. In engineering practice, when commercially available software is used, it is necessary to look for the optimum between the accuracy of the calculation and the length of the calculation. This paper deals with solution of eigenfrequencies of 1D elements with nonuniform cross section using Python 3.7.4 with libraries "numpy 1.18.1" for finding eigenvalues of matrices and "scipy 1.4.1" for finding solution for system of nonlinear equations.
