The dynamics of a buckled beam are studied for both the initial value problem and forced external excitation. The principal focus is on chaotic oscillations due to forced excitation. In particular, a discussion of their relationship to the initial value problem and a comparison of results from a theoretical model with those from a physical experiment are presented.
