In rotating beams, the Coriolis force acts through the mass and rotary inertias of the beam. A rotating beam simply supported off the axis of rotation is used as an example to study effects of this Coriolis force on vibration of structures. By adopting such a simple model, mass- and rotary inertia-induced terms in the free vibration responses can be obtained in separate, closed forms. The effect of each of these terms on vibration characteristics of the rotating beam is discussed in relation to parameters such as nonrotating natural frequencies, the rotation speed, and the slenderness ratio. Practical implications of these results in analyses of rotating structures of other types are discussed, for example estimating the significance of rotary inertias in relation to the slenderness ratio and the rotation speed.
