In the present work, hysteresis is simulated by means of internal variables. Analytical models of different types of hysteresis loops enable reproduction of major and minor loops and provide good agreement with experimental data. Using an effective algorithm based on the analysis of wandering trajectories, an evolution of chaotic behavior regions of oscillators with hysteresis is presented in various parametric planes. A substantial influence of a hysteretic dissipation value on the form and location of these regions and also restraining and generating effects of the hysteretic dissipation on chaos occurrence are shown. It was demonstrated that for fixed parameters, which govern the shape of a hysteresis loop, the extent of pinch of this loop could be controlled by means of the amplitude and frequency of external periodic excitation.
