The transverse vibrations of an axially moving string with a time-varying speed is studied in this paper. The governing equations of motion describing an axially moving string is analyzed using two different techniques. At first, the initial-boundary value problem is discretized using the Fourier sine series, and then the two timescales perturbation method is employed in search of infinite mode approximate solutions. Secondly, a new approach based on the two timescales perturbation method and the method of characteristics is used. It is found that there are infinitely many values of the velocity fluctuation frequency yielding infinitely many resonance conditions in the system. The response of the system with harmonically varying velocity function is computed for particular harmonic initial conditions.
