Superharmonic resonances of nonlinear forced bending vibrations of moderately large curvature of nonuniform cantilever beams of rectangular cross section and a sharp end are reported. Cantilevers of constant width and parabolic thickness variation are considered in this paper. Method of multiple scales is directly applied to the governing partial-differential equation of motion and boundary conditions. Two problems, zero- and first-order problem, result. Solving the zero-order problem, the linear modes are obtained in terms of hypergeometric functions by using the factorization method. The first-order problem provides the amplitude and phase evolution equation and consequently the superharmonic frequency response of the nonlinear system.
