Dynamic instability of elastically supported beam under traveling inertia load

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

3 Scopus citations


The dynamic instability of an elastically supported Timoshenko beam under the constant velocity traveling inertia load has been investigated. The regions of dynamic instability are determined for different values of the elastic foundation constant. Floquet theory is utilized to study the parametric regions of instability, which are displayed in graphical form.
