Integrability and chaotic behaviour in a two-coupled Duffing oscillators are studied. The coupling is nonlinear. Painlevé test is performed to identify integrable cases of damped- and force-free system. Exact analytical solutions are given for the integrable cases. Effect of external periodic forces for (i) single well with infinite height potential, (ii) potential with a hump at the centre and (iii) single well with finite height hump potential are numerically investigated. Occurrence of multiple attractors and period doubling cascades of coexisting attractors is presented.
