This work offers the first known three-dimensional continuum vibration analysis for rotating, laminated composite blades. A cornerstone of this work is that the dynamical energies of the rotating blade are derived from a 3-D elasticity-based, truncated quadrangular pyramid model incorporating laminated orthotropicity, full geometric nonlinearity using an updated Lagrangian formulation and Coriolis acceleration terms.
