The dynamic stability of an elastically supported Timoshenko beam exited by a continuous sequence of identical, mass particles attached to and traveling at a constant velocity across the beam has been investigated. The regions of dynamic stability are determined for different physical system parameters. Floquet theory is utilized to study the parametric regions of stability, which are displayed in graphical form.
