A Sequel to: Analytical and Experimental Investigation of Stability of Frames and Arches Subjected to Follower Forces

Research output: Book/ReportReport


The displacement method developed for the analysis of the stability of circular arches in paper (1) excludes the mass of the arch. To overcome the shortcomings of paper (1) in this respect, the method of initial parameters is employed below in the derivation of the frequency equations of a circular arch subjected to a nonconservative follower force Q at the free end (Figs 1, 2) and taking into account the mass of the arch.
