Postflutter behavior of nonlinear discrete dynamical systems having a combination of gyroscopic and circulatory forces are studied. The study leads to Hopf bifurcations. The method of analysis is based on the method of Hopf and the method of integral manifolds. The results of the analysis are applied to an example and the accuracy of the analysis is checked against numerical solutions of the equations of motion.
