This paper presents the numerical experiment of a discretized loaded cable with periodic forcing. There appeared to be various type of nonlinear oscillations over a wide range of frequencies and amplitudes for the periodic forcing term. The same forcing term can give rise to large or small oscillation by solving initial value problem and observing the solutions after a long time.
