Some Considerations on Variational Principle for Elastic Rods with Finite Rotations in Space
An effort is made to derive a complementary energy principle for large deflection problems of nonplanar rods with finite rotations in space. As with the existing literature the subsidiary conditions are given in linear forms while the complementary energy functional is given in nonlinear forms with respect to the generalized stress resultants and moments.
