The coupled bending-extensional in-plane vibration of a rotating curved beam is considered. The dynamic system is governed by two coupled differential equations and six boundary conditions. The conventional method of transition matrix is usually used to solve the system composed of one nth order differential equation and n boundary conditions. In this study, the system of a rotating curved beam is different from that of the conventional one. The modified method of a semi-analytical transition matrix is developed to study this system. Finally, several physical observations about the rotating curved beam are manifested.
