Dynamic Stability Formulation

A cantilever loaded at its free end is used to introduce the subject of dynamic stability, including non-conservative axial external force such as the case presented at the end of Chap. 8. The essential difference between divergence instability with zero eigenfrequency and flutter instability, i.e., vibration with increasing amplitude is discussed. The limitation of formulations with a single degree of freedom is also presented.
