Columns under a Follower Force with a Constant Line of Action
This chapter discusses the relation between Beck’s column and Reut’s column from the viewpoint of boundary value problems. It is shown that Reut’s column can be derived through variational calculus as the adjoint boundary value problem of Beck’s column.
