Abstract:

The linearized, elastic stability theory of Biezeno and Hencky Koninklijke Akademie van Wetenschappen te Amsterdam, Proceedings, 31569 to 592, 1928 for problems which are nonlinear both physically and geometrically are applied to two cases. An exact, plane strain solution, in closed form, is obtained for rectangular bars under uni-axial initial stress. Also obtained is an exact solution for round bars under uni-axial initial stress. Results show that the theory yields plausible information for bars of arbitrary length, i.e. included are short bars whose stability behavior have eluded description by classical theories. Author
