It is assumed that (a) the radius of curvature is constant and (b) the Young’s modulus and Poisson’s number depend on the cross-sectional coordinates. We have the following objectives: (1) derivation of a model more accurate than those available in the literature, (2) determination of the critical load assuming that the beam is subjected to a constant radial dead load at the crown point, (3) comparison of the results obtained with solutions valid for homogeneous beams.</p>}, number={1}, journal={Technische Mechanik - European Journal of Engineering Mechanics}, author={Kiss, L. and Szeidl, G.}, year={2019}, month={Jun.}, pages={1–30} }
