In this paper, we consider a rotating system of elasticity. It consists of a disk, a flexible beam and a tip mass. The beam is assumed to be non-homogeneous (space depending of physical parameters). Moreover, the flexible beam is clamped at one end to the center of the disk, whereas a tip mass is attached to its other end. The disk rotates freely around its axis with a time-dependent angular velocity and the motion of the beam-mass is confined to a plane perpendicular to the disk. The system is shown to be exponentially stable under the action of: i) a torque control applied on the disk; ii) a force control and moment control or only a force control. Furthermore, the Riesz basis property is proved for the system in the case of uniform angular velocity.
