In this research, the effects of drilling mud flow and WOB force on the lateral vibration of drill string are investigated. To this goal, the kinetic and potential energy of drill string for axial and lateral vibrations are written in an integral equation. In potential energy equation, the effect of geometrical shortening, which causes nonlinear coupling between axial and lateral vibration, is considered. Drilling mud forces are modeled by Paidoussis formulations. The works done by WOB force, weight of drill string and drilling mud forces are calculated. The mode summation method is employed to convert the continuous system to a discrete one. Dropping and considering third and fourth order tensor of potential energy lead to linear and nonlinear system, respectively. The effects of stabilizers are modeled by a linear stiff spring. The wall contact is modeled by Hertzian contact force. Lagrange equation is employed for finding the equations of motions. First and second natural frequencies of drill string are found for different WOB and drilling mud flow. Also the effects of drilling mud and nonlinear terms on lateral vibration of drill string are investigated. The effect of drilling mud on the post buckling vibration of drill string is also delivered. This formulation can be used for optimization of drilling mud flow, WOB and the number and positions of stabilizer so that the lateral vibration of drill string is minimized.
