The dynamic behavior of a simply-supported spinning Timoshenko shaft with coupled bending and torsion is analyzed. This is accomplished by transforming the set of nonlinear partial differential equations of motion into a set of linear ordinary differential equations. This set of ordinary differential equations is a time-varying system and the solution is obtained analytically in terms of Chebyshev series. A beating phenomoenon is observed from the numerical simulations, which is not observed for shaft systems where only bending vibration is considered.
