Full-text: Open access


We prove the existence and uniqueness of a $C^2$--solution of the Timoshenko system for the motion of an elastic beam. In addition, we give pointwise estimates for the displacement, rotation, shear angle and their derivatives with constants explicitly calculated. The method of proof is based on the Hille--Yosida operator theory.
