Nonlinear Dynamics of a Parametrically Excited Laminated Beam: Narrow-Band Random Excitation
The first mode parametric resonance of a laminated beam subject to narrow-band random excitation is taken into consideration. The method of multiple scales is used and the stochastic jump and bifurcation have been investigated aiming at the stationary joint probability of the response of the system by using finite difference method. Results show that stochastic jump occurs mainly in the region of triple valued solution. The higher is the frequency, the more probable is the jump from the stationary nontrivial branch to the trivial one, whereas the most probable motion gradually approaches the trivial one when the band width becomes higher.
