The objective of the present paper is to analyze dynamic response of the Timoshenko thin-walled beam with coupled bending and torsional vibrations under deterministic loads. The governing differential equations were obtained by using Hamilton’s principle. The Timoshenko beam theory was employed and the effects of shear deformations, Rotary inertia and warping stiffness were included in the present formulations. Dynamic features of underlined beam are obtained using free vibration analysis.
For this purpose, the dynamic stiffness matrix method is used. Application of exact dynamic stiffness matrix method on the movement differential equations led to the issue of nonlinear eigenvalue problem that was solved by using Wittrick–Williams algorithm . Differential equations for the displacement response of asymmetric thin-walled Timoshenko beams subjected to deterministic loads are used for extracting orthogonality property of vibrational modes.
Finally the numerical results for dynamic response in a sample of mentioned beams is presented. The presented theory is relatively general and can be used for various kinds of deterministic loading in Timoshenko thin-walled beams.
