The efficiency of the finite strip method (FSM) in modeling the varying dynamics of shell-like structures during machining operations is investigated. The workpiece is modeled as a shallow, helicoidal, cantilevered shell, and the natural modes are computed using FSM. In the FSM solution, the workpiece is discretized only in the chordwise direction, and the membrane and bending displacement fields of the shell in the spanwise direction are approximated by a set of basis functions that satisfy clamped-free boundary conditions. The displacement fields in the chordwise direction are approximated using polynomial functions. The efficiency of the presented FSM is investigated by comparing the computed natural vibration modes against the ones obtained using the finite element method (FEM). The FSM model was found to yield results of greater or comparable accuracy, even with up to 40% fewer degrees-of-freedom (DOFs). Also, the accuracy of the presented model is verified by comparing the predicted frequency response functions (FRFs) against the FRFs that were measured by conducting impulse hammer tests in various stages of machining a generic curved blade.
