### The effect of warping on the dynamics of thin-walled beams

#### Abstract

Thin-walled beams are of widespread application: they have high bending stiffness in at least a principal plane of inertia, but negligible torsion stiffness. Saint-Venant theory is not suitable to describe their behaviour, thus suitable models are needed. To ease computation, one-dimensional continua are interesting, and can be derived by richer models: in [1] the field equations derive from inner constraints on shells, like in [2], where nonlinear constitutive relations are provided. 1-D direct models explicitly lead to ordinary differential equations, easier to integrate. In [3] there are as many directors attached to the beam axis as stripes in the cross-section; in [4] kinematics is enriched by describing warping via the Saint-Venant warping function. In [5] the standard beam model is enriched by a coarse descriptor of warping and nonlinear constitutive relations. The model is refined in [6] to distinguish between centroid and shear centre; in [7] the suitable form of inner shearing constraints and of warping inertia is investigated. The model can so catch the buckling and post-buckling of beams and frames in 3-D space. Here we use the model to investigate the effect of warping and warping constraints on the linear dynamics of open thin-walled beams for pattern schemes. We will present results by means of numerical techniques and laboratory experiments, and compare them with those in [8].
