BUCKLING UNDER NONCONSERVATIVE LOAD: CONSERVATIVE SPATIAL CHAOS

Abstract

Buckling of an elastic linkage under nonconservative load is investigated. There is a related initial value problem, which is conservative and chaotic, and gives valuable aid in finding the buckled shapes of the linkage. To illustrate the equilibrium configurations, the bifurcation diagram is constructed, which turns out to be a distorted version of the bifurcation diagram of the linkage under a conservative load.
