A solution procedure for the bending-bending vibration of a rotating damped beam with arbitrary pretwist and an elastically restrained root is derived. The viscous damping is assumed to be proportional to the distributed mass. The general complex system is divided into two subsystems. The physical meanings of the subsystems are studied. The exact complex frequency relations between two viscously damped beams with arbitrary pretwist and elastic root are revealed. The underdamping, critical damping and overdamping systems are analyzed. Moreover, the influence of the parameters on the decay rate, the natural frequencies, the critical damping, and the phenomenon of divergence instability are investigated.
