Title

Stability and Natural Characteristics of a Supported Beam

Abstract

The stability, natural characteristics and critical axial force of a supported beam are analyzed. The both ends of the beam are held by the pinned supports with rotational spring constraints. The eigenvalue problem of the beam with these boundary conditions is investigated firstly, and then, the stability of the beam is analyzed using the derived eigenfuntions. According to the analytical expression obtained, the effect of the spring constants on the critical values of the axial force is discussed. © (2011) Trans Tech Publications.
