Vibration analysis of externally damped spinning Timoshenko beams with general boundary conditions is performed analytically. Exact solutions for natural frequencies and normal modes for the six classical boundary conditions are derived for the first time. In the numerical simulations, the trend between the complex frequencies and the damping coefficient is investigated, and complex mode shapes are presented in three-dimensional space.
