The geometrically nonlinear dynamics of a three-dimensional axially moving beam is investigated numerically for both sub and supercritical regimes. Hamilton's principle is employed to derive the equations of motion for in-plane and out-of plane displacements. The Galerkin scheme is applied to the nonlinear partial differential equations of motion yielding a set of second-order nonlinear ordinary differential equations with coupled terms. The pseudo-arclength continuation technique is employed to solve the discretized equations numerically so as to obtain the nonlinear resonant responses; direct time integration is conducted to obtain the bifurcation diagrams of the system. The results are presented in the form of the frequency-response curves, bifurcation diagrams, time histories, phase-plane portraits, and fast Fourier transforms for different sets of system parameters.
