In this paper, a z-shaped planar inextensible beam with harmonic foundation excitations is considered. The linear frequencies and modes of the beam with various folding angles are obtained through analytical formulations, and validated by numerical simulations. The continuous system is truncated into a system of ordinary differential equations with quadratic nonlinear terms by using the Galerkin method based on the modes obtained under a special folding angle, which may bring about modal interactions. The nonlinearities of the system are researched under the combined resonances, such as primary and internal resonances.
