This paper deals with the nonlinear steady-state responses of a multi-degree-of-freedom system to combined forcing and parametric excitations. The governing equation is represented by a generalized Duffing type equation which describes the nonlinear vibrations with large amplitudes of structural and mechanical systems. The nonlinear responses are computed by using the method of harmonic balance and their stabilities are determined from the infinitesimal stability criterion. A fine agreement between experimental and analytical results was confirmed, and the effect of the clearances between adjacent structural elements was also examined experimentally in a roller chain system as an example.
