This study develops dynamic analysis based on the dynamic stiffness method for a rotating beam of nonuniform cross-section. To deal with nonuniform beams, coefficients related to material and geometric properties in the equation of motion are expressed in a polynomial form. A dynamic stiffness matrix is accordingly formulated in terms of power series. The dynamic response of the rotating beam is calculated by performing modal analysis. It is demonstrated that the present method provides an alternative to the finite element method in dealing with nonuniform rotating beams.
