The paper studies the behavior of a spatial Euler-Bernoulli beam loaded by a terminal thrusting force and a couple. The classical Clebsch-Kirchhoff equilibrium equations are written by using appropriate angular coordinates describing the finite rotations of the local frames attached to each cross-sections of the beam with respect to a fixed system. When we have geometric boundary conditions at one end and dynamic boundary conditions (a force and a couple) at the other the set of equilibrium equations form and initial value probem which can easily be solved with standard Runge-Kutta method.
