© 2018 Elsevier Ltd This paper investigates the global bifurcations and multi-pulse jumping chaotic dynamics of circular mesh antenna. An equivalent continuum circular cylindrical shell is employed to represent the circular mesh antenna. Based on the four-dimension non-autonomous nonlinear governing equations of motion for the equivalent continuum circular cylindrical shell derived by Zhang et al. (2016, 2017), the improved extended Melnikov theory of the non-autonomous nonlinear system is utilized to conduct a theoretical analysis of the multi-pulse jumping chaotic motions for the equivalent continuum circular cylindrical shell. The thermal excitation and damping coefficient are considered as the controlling parameters to analyze their effect on the nonlinear vibrations and bifurcations of the equivalent continuum circular cylindrical shell. Numerical simulations are also introduced to further verify the existence of the multi-pulse jumping chaotic motions for the equivalent continuum circular cylindrical shell. The results obtained from the numerical simulations are compared to those obtained from the Melnikov theoretical prediction.
