A hierarchical finite element model is presented for the flapwise bending vibration analysis of a tapered rotating multi-layered composite beam. The shear and rotary inertia effects are considered based on the higher shear deformation theory to derive the stiffness and mass matrices of a tapered-twisted rotating and composite beam element. Certain non-composite beams for which comparative results are available in the literature are used to illustrate the application of the proposed technique… CONTINUE READING
