ABSTRACT: The local dynamics of an axially moving string under aerodynamic forces is investigated with a time-delayed velocity feedback controller. The retarded differential difference governing equation is obtained in modal coordinates of a two-degree-of-freedom system through Galerkin’s discretization procedure. The stability of trivial equilibrium is examined with the change of counting multiplicity of eigenvalue with positive real part. The Hopf bifurcation curves are determined in the controlling parameter spaces. With the aid of the center manifold reduction, a functional analysis is carried out to reduce the modal equation to a single ordinary differential equation of one complex variable on the center manifold. The approximate analytical solutions in the vicinity of Hopf bifurcations are derived in the case of primary resonance. The curves of excitation–response and frequency–response curves are shown with the effect of time delay. The stability analysis for steady-state periodic solutions of the reduced system indicates the onset of local control parameter for vibration control and response suppression. Moreover, the Poincaré–Bendixson theorem and energy considerations are used to investigate the existences and characteristics of quasi-periodic solutions when stability of the periodic solution is lost. Numerical results demonstrate the validity of the analytical prediction. Two different kinds of quasi-periodic solutions are found.
