Dynamic buckling analysis of a pinned-pinned flexible beam attached to a sliding mass is investigated using nonlinear Elastica Theory. Initially straight flexible buckling beam having pinned end boundary conditions loaded at one of its end with curved imperfection is considered. Large de- flection analysis of flexible beam is studied using nonlinear elastica theory. Imperfection analysis of the flexible beam is investigated considering imperfection as an initial curvature. Dynamic response of the flexible beam is studied using numerical simulation procedures under step loading conditions; assuming this member buckles in its first mode.
