This research investigates nonlinear dynamics of an elastic body supported at both its ends by electromagnetic forces between superconductors and magnets. We focus on the primary resonance of each eigenmode under vertical excitation of superconducting bulks. Experiment and numerical analysis show the softening tendency in the resonance of the 3rd mode consisting of mainly deflection and slightly translation. This nonlinear response can be theoretically explained only by nonlinear coupling between the 1st and 3rd modes through their quadratic terms.
