In this paper we continue our investigation of a slowly rotating Timoshenko beam in a horizontal plane whose movement is controlled by the angular acceleration of the disk of a driving motor into which the beam is clamped. We show how to choose a feedback control allowing to stabilize our system (the beam plus the disk) in a preassigned position of rest.

Keywords: Stabilizability, Timoshenko beam, feedback control
