The governing differential equations and the boundary conditions for the coupled bending-bending-extensional vibration of a rotating nonuniform beam with arbitrary pretwist and an elastically restrained root are derived by Hamilton’s principle. The semianalytical solution procedure for an inextensional beam without taking account of the coriolis forces is derived. The coupled governing differential equations are transformed to be a vector characteristic governing equation. The frequency equation of the system is derived and expressed in terms of the transition matrix of the vector governing equation. A simple and efficient algorithm for determining the transition matrix of the general system with arbitrary pretwist is derived. The divergence in the Frobenius method does not exist in the proposed method. The frequency relations between different systems are revealed. The mechanism of instability is discovered. The influence of the rotatory inertia, the coupling effect of the rotating speed and the mass moment of inertia, the setting angle, the rotating speed and the spring constants on the natural frequencies, and the phenomenon of divergence instability are investigated.
