We consider a problem of boundary stabilization of small flexural vibrations of a flexible structure modeled by an Euler-Bernoulli beam which is held by a rigid hub at one end and totally free at the other. The hub dynamics leads to a hybrid system of equations. By incorporating a condition of small rate of change of the deflection with respect tox as well ast, over the length of the beam, for appropriate initial conditions, uniform exponential decay of energy is established when a viscous boundary damping is present at the hub end.
