Rotating effects on hygro-mechanical vibration analysis of FG beams based on Euler-Bernoulli beam theory
Javad Ehyaei, Navid Farazmandnia and Ali Jafari

    This paper investigates free vibration characteristics of a rotating functionally graded (FG) beam in hygro environments. In the present study, material properties of the FG beam vary continuously through thickness direction according to the power-law which approximates material properties of FG beam. The governing differential equations of motion are derived based on Euler-Bernoulli beam theory and using the Hamilton\'s principle which solved utilizing a semi-analytical technique called the Differential Transform Method (DTM). In order to verify the competency and accuracy of the current analysis, a comparative study with previous researches are performed and good agreement is observed. Influences of Several important parameters such as power-law exponent, hygro environment, rotational speed and slenderness ratio on natural frequencies are investigated and discussed in detail. It is concluded that these effects play significant role on dynamic behavior of rotating FG beam in the hygro environments. Numerical results are tabulated in several tables and figures that can be serving as benchmarks for future analyses of rotating FG beams in the hygro environments.
