The Nonlinear Stability of a Heavy Rigid Plate Supported by Flexible Columns
1992) The Nonlinear Stability of a Heavy Rigid Plate Supported by Flexible Columns. Technical Report TR-92-61, Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. (
A heavy rigid platform is supported by thin elastic legs. The governing equations for large deformations are formulated and solved numerically by homotopy and quasi-Newton methods. Nonlinear phenomena such as non-uniqueness, catastrophe and hysteresis are found. A global critical load for nonlinear stability is introduced.
