This paper deals with modal frequencies of rotating flexible beam. To investigate effects on the modal frequencies from rotation, the mathematical models are derived by using three descriptions on deformation: the conventional approach, the quadratic approach, and a synthetical approach. The theoretical solutions of modal frequencies based on the three methods are used to compare and draw some summaries.
