English abstract:
We study the asymptotic behaviour for a system consisting of a
clamped exible beam that carries a tip payload, which is attached to a nonlinear damper and a nonlinear spring at its end. Characterizing the !-limit sets of the trajectories, we give a necessary condition under which the system is asymptotically stable. In the case when this condition is not satisfied, we show that the beam deflection approaches a non-decaying time-periodic solution.
