A spectral finite element formulation for a rotating beam subjected to small duration impact is presented in this paper. The spatial variation in centrifugal force is modeled in an average sense. Spectrum and dispersion plots are obtained as a function of rotating speed. It is shown that the flexural wave tends to behave nondispersively at very high rotation speeds. The numerical results are simulated for two rotating waveguides of different dimensions. The results show that there is a steep increase in responses with the response peaks and the reflected signals almost vanishing at higher rotating speeds. The solution obtained in this work can be used as Ritz functions for the spectral finite element method, where the variable coefficient differential equation is present.
