Nonlinear equations of motion for the elastic bending and torsion of twisted nonuniform rotor blades
The equations of motion are developed by two complementary methods, Hamilton's principle and the Newtonian method. The resulting equations are valid to second order for long, straight, slender,Expand

Geometrically Exact, Intrinsic Theory for Dynamics of Curved and Twisted Anisotropic Beams
A formulation is presented for the nonlinear dynamics of initially curved and twisted anisotropic beams. When the applied loads at the ends of, and distributed along, the beam are independent of theExpand

Nonlinear Beam Kinematics by Decomposition of the Rotation Tensor
A simple matrix expression is obtained for the strain components of a beam in which the displacements and rotations are large. The only restrictions are on the magnitudes of the strain and of theExpand

On asymptotically correct Timoshenko-like anisotropic beam theory
Abstract This paper presents a finite element cross-sectional beam analysis capable of capturing transverse shear effects. The approach uses the variational-asymptotic method and can handle beams ofExpand
