Transverse Vibration of a Rotating Beam via the Finite Element Method

rotating_beam

A function for calculating the natural frequencies and mode shapes for an elastic beam undergoing rotation is given in:

Matlab script: Vibrationdata Signal Analysis Package

The function can be accessed via:

>> vibrationdata > Miscellaneous > Structural Dynamics > Beam Bending > Rotating Beam, FEA

An option is included for calculating the response to a uniform force/length.
