Title Stability of a Straight Bar of Variable Rigidity
Author(s) V.I. Gorbachev (Lomonosov Moscow State University, GSP-2, Leninskie Gory, Moscow, 119992 Russia,
O.B. Moskalenko (Lomonosov Moscow State University, GSP-2, Leninskie Gory, Moscow, 119992 Russia,
Abstract We consider the longitudinal compression of a straight bar whose rigidity is a periodic integrable function of the longitudinal coordinate. For a hinged bar with one clamped end, we obtain approximate analytic formulas that permit obtaining the critical compressing loads under which an adjacent, curved form of equilibrium is possible. In the case of a bar of stepwise varying rigidity that consists of a single period (the limit case), we compare the results obtained by our formulas with the already known exact solutions of the stability equation. A good agreement between the approximate and exact results is shown.
