Hayes, Wallace D. (1943) Some investigations in the buckling of thin rods. Engineer's thesis, California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-11182008-135603
The general case of a non-uniform, straight rod under varying axial load is investigated, and several methods of solution are indicated or described. The case of a uniform rod with constant axial load is investigated by means of its deflection curve, and the direct determination of the stability with general end restraints is made possible by the use of a graph. The correlation between the end fixities of a rod and its behavior as a beam is given.
