In this paper we study a star-shaped network of Euler-Bernoulli
beams, in which a new geometric condition at the common node is
imposed. For the network, we give a method to assert whether or
not the system is asymptotically stable. In addition, by spectral
analysis of the system operator, we prove that there exists a
sequence of its root vectors that forms a Riesz basis with
parentheses for the Hilbert state space.
