1/2 Subharmonic Resonance and Chaotic Motions in a Model of Elastic Cable
The finite motions of a suspended elastic cable subjected to a planar harmonic excitation is studied through one ordinary equation with quadratic and cubic nonlinearities. The onset of chaotic motions in the neighbourhood of the 1/2 subharmonic resonance condition is analysed via numerical simulations.
