In this presentation we will report on joint efforts with D.J. Inman and his colleagues at MSL, SUNY at Buffalo, to develop viable models for the analysis and control of elastic structures exhibiting coupled torsional and flexural vibrations. A model for coupled torsion and bending is developed which incorporates Kelvin Voigt damping and warping. Approximation techniques are introduced and preliminary numerical results are discussed. Experimental data is presented and used to test our computational results.
