Mode structure maps for freely vibrating cylinders over a range of Poisson's ratio, ν, are desirable for the design and interpretation of experiments using resonant ultrasound spectroscopy (RUS). The full range of isotropic ν (-1 to +0.5) is analyzed here using a finite element method to accommodate materials with a negative Poisson's ratio. The fundamental torsional mode has the lowest frequency provided ν is between about -0.24 and +0.5. For any ν, the torsional mode can be identified utilizing the polarization sensitivity of the shear transducers. RUS experimental results for materials with Poisson's ratio +0.3, +0.16, and -0.3 and a previous numerical study for ν = 0.33 are compared with the present analysis. Interpretation of results is easiest if the length/diameter ratio of the cylinder is close to 1. Slight material anisotropy leads to splitting of the higher modes but not of the fundamental torsion mode.
