Abstract

We examine the dynamics of the elastic inverted pendulum with a tip mass under horizontal harmonic excitation. In particular, we study the conditions when the potential barrier is overcome by the tip mass, and large amplitude oscillations occur, by means of the Melnikov criterion. The results have been confirmed by numerical simulations.
