This paper presents an exact solution for the transverse response of an axially moving string under general boundary conditions. The response solution is derived in the frequency domain and interpreted in terms of wave propagation functions. The response in the time domain involves only several convolution integrals which can easily be obtained for many physical boundary conditions. The transient response of the translating string with a spring or a dashpot at a boundary is presented.
