This paper investigates the dynamic behaviour of a hanging chain for excitation frequencies that lie in the vicinity of natural frequencies. The results are validated using two different solution methodologies. The study is conducted for both the undamped and the damping included cases. The calculations concern mainly the free end of the chain as this is the point that performs the larger motions.
