Approximate solutions are obtained for the non-linear problem of the forced whirling of a heavy chain. It is shown that for a given mode of whirling, triple valued solutions are obtained for speeds of rotation above the linear critical speed for that mode. It is also shown that two of these solutions are stable while the third is unstable.
