Correction of Virtual Work Relationships for the Effect of Axial Load

The virtual work equation by which flexural deformations are related has been corrected to allow for the effect of axial compressive forces. These corrections can be applied wherever the end moments on an axially loaded member are defined and are particularly useful in the determination of the elastic critical loads of structural systems by reiterative numerical methods.
