This paper presents a general analytical model for free vibration of thin-walled composite beams with arbitrary laminate stacking sequences and studies the effects of shear deformation over the natural frequencies. This model is based on the first-order shear-deformable beam theory and accounts for all the structural coupling coming from the material anisotropy. The seven governing differential equations for coupled flexural–torsional–shearing vibration are derived from the Hamilton’s principle. The resulting coupling is referred to as sixfold coupled vibration. Numerical results are obtained to investigate the effects of fiber angle, span-to-height ratio, modulus ratio, and boundary conditions on the natural frequencies as well as corresponding mode shapes of thin-walled composite box beams.
