The nonlinear dynamics of the dusty plasma–dusty beam instability is investigated in the dusty plasma waveguides bounded by dielectrics. The dusty plasma includes the positive ions as the light component and the negative dust as the heavy component. A beam of dust particles moves along the waveguide. The set of hydrodynamic equations for the dust and beam particles, namely, the continuity equations and the equations for the momentum jointly with the Poisson one are used. The Boltzmann distribution is used for the ions. The electric and hydrodynamic boundary conditions are applied at the interfaces. The simulations have demonstrated that the dusty sound waves of small amplitudes are the subject to amplification with a high increment due to the convective instability, even when the concentration of the beam particles is ≤0.1 of the uniform dust concentration. The amplification very rapidly transits to the regime of strong surface nonlinearity, and near the interfaces the variations of the dust concentration reach extremely high values, where the collapse of the beam dust component occurs.
