## Abstract

The Euler-Bernoulli kinematic model as well as the von Kármán geometric non-linearity are used to derive the PDEs governing flexible beam vibrations. The beam is embedded into a 2D temperature field, and its surface is subjected to action of the electric potential. We report how an increase of the exciting load amplitude yields the beam turbulent behavior, and how the temperature changes a scenario from a regular/laminar to spatio-temporal/ turbulent dynamics. Both classical Fourier analysis and Morlet wavelets are used to monitor a strong influence of temperature on regular and chaotic beam dynamics.
