Abstract. Nonlinear coupling between torsional and both in-plane and out-of-plane flexural motion is examined
for inextensional beams (or beam-like structures) whose torsional and flexural eigenfrequencles are of the same order. The analysis presented here is based on a consistent set of nonlinear differential equations which contain both curvature and inertia nonlinearities, and account for torsional dynamics. Response characteristics, including stability, are determined for cantilever beams subjected to a lateral periodic excitation. The beam's response in the presence of a one-to-one internal resonance involving a torsional frequency and an in-plane bending frequency is investigated in detail.

Key words: Beams, nonlinear oscillations, flexural-torsional dynamics, torsional response, nonlinear resonance.

1. Introduction

To date, the analyses of nonlinear dynamics of beams that have been presented in the literature have dealt with the case where the torsional frequencies of the beam are much higher than its bending frequencies. For such a case, the torsional inertia has no significant effect on the motion of the beam and, thus, the torsional deformation is determined directly by the nonlinear coupling between in-plane and out-of-plane bending. Many applications involving the dynamics of structural elements fall into this important class of problems. Analytical and experimental investigations for such cases are exemplified by the works reported in [1-8]. For beams having a cross section with high aspect ratio, for example, the first torsional natural frequency is of the order of a lower bending natural frequency. This may also be observed in long structural members that may be modeled as a beam, such as components of space structures or satellites. In this case, the nonlinear coupling between torsional and bending motions may cause an exchange of energy between such motions. There are two myths which are common among engineers whose training has not included nonlinear analysis techniques; (1) "keep the amplitudes of excitation small, and a linear analysis should be sufficient"; (2) "amplitudes of nonlinear motions are so large in beam structures that the structure would be destroyed long before its amplitude grows that large. Thus, a study of nonlinear phenomena in such structures is unneeded". The results presented in Parts I and II of this work, and in several other papers that have been published in the technical literature, clearly serve to dispel such myths. In this paper, nonlinear coupling between torsional and flexural motions in inextensional beams is examined by taking into account the torsional dynamics of the beam. Here, torsional and flexural natural frequencies are of the same order, thus allowing for the occurrence of a number of nonlinear phenomena that involves such motions. The differential equations formulated in [2, 3] and in [4] are used for such investigation. Those equations contain all the geometric nonlinearities that arise when an inextensional beam is deforming in three-

dimensional space. The beam is subjected to a lateral periodic excitation with frequency near a bending natural frequency which, in turn, is near the first torsional natural frequency of the beam. In Part II of this work, a combination resonance where a torsional natural frequency is near the sum of two bending natural frequencies is addressed.

2. Equations of Motion
The system analyzed here is shown in Figure 1. It consists of a cantilever of length L and specific (i.e., per unit length) mass re(s), subjected to a distributed periodic force Qv (s, t) = qv(s) cos(f~t), or to a base displacement qv cos(f~t), applied in the inertial y-direction. The independent variable s is the arc length measured along the beam, and t denotes time. The small effects due to extensionality, which are taken into account in [4, 9, 10], and shear deformation are neglected. The differential equations, and the boundary conditions, that govern the flexuralflexural-torsional motions for inextensional beams were first formulated in [2]. Further details of the formulation are also given in [4]. The expanded version of those equations, which are amenable to a perturbation analysis of the motion, are given below for the case when the beam is subjected to the distributed force indicated above. The first two equations below are Equations (46b) and (47b) in [4], while the third equation is Equation (1 ld) in [2].

if the possibility of bending-torsion coupling had been neglected a priori. the bending amplitude remains at the constant value corresponding to point A while the torsional amplitude jumps from zero to point C and increases to the value corresponding to point E. respectively. The sensitivity of the frequency response to both the excitation strength. there is a jump in the bending amplitude from point B to point D while the torsional amplitude jumps down from point E to zero. The results obtained here show . which occurs when the excitation strength is lowered below the level at which equilibrium E2 exists.002. while equilibrium Ez is unstable throughout the region of excitation strengths shown in Figure 9. M. Only equilibrium E1 is stable in that region. In that case. i. as the excitation strength was increased. Thus. the bending amplitude increases steadily until it reaches a value corresponding to point A. discloses that as the excitation strength is increased from zero. which was generated for e2cr2 = 0.02. equilibrium El becomes stable again while equilibrium E2 becomes unstable. R.005 equilibrium E2 is unstable within the range of excitation strengths shown. Numerical integration of the governing differential equations was also performed in order to verify the accuracy of the perturbation analysis. Analytical expressions for the steady state response characteristics were obtained by a perturbation analysis. This is clearly an example of saturation since at the excitation strength corresponding to point A.005. was investigated by taking into account all the geometric nonlinearities in the differential equations of motion. 6. which is valid when there is no commensurability between the frequencies of other modes. If only in-plane bending had been considered in the response analysis. the bending amplitude "saturates" and any further energy pumped into the system is transferred to the torsional component via the internal one-to-one resonance.. Figure 9 shows that for a value of detuning of 6202 ~. and to the internal and external resonance detunings. The branch A-C of the bending response corresponding to equilibrium E1 is also unstable which results in a jump of the bending amplitude from point A to point B as the excitation strength is increased from zero. Crespo da Silva and C. The beam was subjected to an in-plane resonant bending excitation in the presence of a one-to-one internal resonance between an in-plane bending frequency and a torsional frequency. the response curve obtained for the planar bending amplitude would resemble that of the bending motion given by equilibrium E1 with the exception that section A-C of the response curve would be stable. the jump up of the bending amplitude would occur at point A'. As the excitation strength is increased further. Zaretzky show this effect for eaCv2 = 0.20 M. Thus. Figure 8.e. e2c72 = 0. The response investigated here consists of single mode approximation for bending and for torsion. has been analyzed in detail. rather than at point A. the effect of the nonlinear bending-torsion coupling still reflects itself on the jump phenomenon for the in-plane response. L. consists of a jump down of the bending amplitude from point G to point H while the torsional amplitude jumps down from point F to a value of zero. This jump. including the effect of torsional dynamics. only equilibrium El is stable. At the excitation strength corresponding to points B and E of the bending and torsional components of equilibrium E2. It is interesting to note that a portion of the response curve shown in Figure 8 that corresponds to saturation is unstable for the values of the parameters indicated in that figure.01 and eZA2 = 0.
