Pagination or Media Count:
The energy criteria of Trefftz and Koiter, for the critical load upon an elastic system and for the stability of the system at the critical load, are presented. The presentation employs geometrical interpretations and simple examples to exhibit the essential features of the criteria and the related behavior of the structural system.
