Bifurcation method of stability analysis and some applications
Published inReports of the Department of Mathematical Information Technology / University of Jyväskylä. Series B, Scientific computing
In this paper a new approach to the analysis of implicitly given function- als is developed in the frame of elastic stability theory. The approach gives an effective procedure to analyse stability behaviour, and to determine the bifur- cation points. Examples of application of the proposed approach for analysis of stability are presented, more precisely we consider the stability problem of an axially moving elastic panel, with no external applied tension, performing transverse vibrations. The analysis is applicable for many practical cases, for example, paper making and band saw blades.
