The vibration behavior of a cracked cantilever beam with a stationary roving mass and rotary inertia is investigated. The beam is modeled as an Euler-Bernoulli beam with rectangular cross section. The transverse deformation and axial deformation of the cracked beam are coupled through a stiffness matrix which is determined based on fracture mechanics principles. The analytical solutions are obtained for the natural frequencies and mode shapes of a cracked cantilever beam with a roving mass and rotary inertia. The effects of the location and depth of the crack, the location and the weight of the roving mass and rotary inertia on the natural frequencies and mode shapes of the beam are investigated. The numerical results show that the coupling between the transverse and axial vibrations for moderate values of crack depth and/or roving mass and rotary inertia is weak. Increasing the crack depth and the mass and rotary inertia will increase the coupling effect. Detection of the crack location using natural frequencies and mode shapes as parameters is also discussed.
