An experimental and theoretical study is carried out with the aim of using existing breadboard type construction in order to validate dynamic models. This experimental study highlights the nonlinear dynamic behavior of a cable consisting of a steel wire surrounded by copper wire. New measurements around the first frequency of vibration of the cable in and out of the plane and around the second harmonic of this frequency were also carried out. These results are in good agreement with the results obtained analytically via new finite (1,2,4) degree-of-freedom models.
