Abstract The equations governing the response of hysteretic systems to sinusoidal forces, which are memory dependent in the classical phase space, can be given as a vector field over a suitable phase space with increased dimension. Hence, the stationary response can be studied with the aids of classical tools of nonlinear dynamics, as for example the Poincaré map. The particular system studied in the paper, based on hysteretic Masing rules, allows the reduction of the dimension of the phase space and the implementation of efficient algorithms. The paper summarises results on one degree of freedom systems and concentrates on a two degree of freedom system as the prototype of many degree of freedom systems. This system has been chosen to be in 1:3 internal resonance situation. Depending on the energy dissipation of the elements restoring force, the response may be more or less complex. The periodic response, described by frequency response curves for various levels of excitation intensity, is highly complex. The coupling produces a strong modification of the response around the first mode resonance, whereas it is negligible around the second mode. Quasi-periodic motion starts bifurcating for sufficiently high values of the excitation intensity; windows of periodic motions are embedded in the dominion of the quasi-periodic motion, as consequence of a locking frequency phenomenon.
