Introduction

The magneto-elastic beam model consists of a cantilevered steel beam suspended between two equidistant magnets, fixed in a rigid frame. A sinusoidal exciting force can shake the frame from side to side.

The behavior of the model at the particular steady states is under investigation. Certain cases are interesting to observe, such as when the system has no outside forcing, or how the model behaves when the parameters vary. Also, how velocity affects the forced model, and an example of chaos.

More information about the model is located in the background section. The analysis contains in detail the physical behavior patterns of the model, along with plotted results, and the conclusion consists of a summary of the results.
