The method of normal forms is used to study the nonlinear response of two-degree-of-freedom systems with repeated natural frequencies and cubic nonlinearity to a principal parametric excitation. The linear part of the system has a nonsemisimple one-to-one resonance. The character of the stability and various types of bifurcation including the formation of a homoclinic orbit are analyzed. The results are applied to the flutter of a simply supported panel in a supersonic airstream.
