Dynamics of a magnetoelastic beam in a periodic magnetic field is investigated. For this aim, a new measurement tool for the observation of vibrations of the beam is introduced in place of using common strain-gauge technique. Several analyses including power spectra, maximal Lyapunov exponent, correlation dimension and time series clustering are carried out to determine vibrational aspects of the system. As a result of these analyses, it is found that the system extremely depends on the frequency of external field, even, the nonlinear character of the motion exhibits more complexity for the odd excitation frequencies.
