The nonlinear dynamics of a cantilever-beam-rigid-body MEMS gyroscope near primary resonance are studied by using a shooting method and long time integration. The microsensor includes a square beam carrying an eccentric end-rigid-body rotating about the longitudinal axis and under an electrostatic force. The mathematical model of the system is reduced by using the method of assumed modes. Using a shooting method and long time integration, the dynamic characteristics of the system are investigated and presented in terms of frequency-response plots and force-response curves. The bifurcation points are discussed and the regions of instability are characterized.
