A mathematical model describing the nonlinear oscillations in elastic structures is proposed. The Energy Balance Method (EBM) is applied to solve the generalized nonlinear Duffing equation obtained in absence of excitation. The numerical results show an excellent agreement with the periodic solutions obtained through the Energy Balance Method. Finally the effects of different parameters on the system behavior are studied.
