Question: Flexible Beam State Variables

I'm trying to run c code generated from a simple MapleSim example (Spin Up Beam). To makes things even simpler, I set the input real expression to just time, and changed the input function in my c code to:

static void inpfn(double T, double *U)
U[0] = T;

I set all the state variables to 0 for the initial conditions. I ran the code and my output doesn't resemble the MapleSim output at all, and I'm getting errors. So my question is about the state variables, which I initially set to 0:

* State variable(s):
* x[ 0] = `Main.SpinUpBeam.FB3.uf1`(t)
* x[ 1] = diff(`Main.SpinUpBeam.FB3.uf1`(t),t)
* x[ 2] = `Main.SpinUpBeam.FB3.uf2`(t)
* x[ 3] = diff(`Main.SpinUpBeam.FB3.uf2`(t),t)
* x[ 4] = `Main.SpinUpBeam.FB3.vf1`(t)
* x[ 5] = diff(`Main.SpinUpBeam.FB3.vf1`(t),t)
* x[ 6] = `Main.SpinUpBeam.FB3.vf2`(t)
* x[ 7] = diff(`Main.SpinUpBeam.FB3.vf2`(t),t)

What do these represent for this flexible beam (FB3)? I.e. what is uf1, uf2, vf1, vf2? Should they be set to 0, or no?
