A cantilevered bar of uniform cross section and subjected at the free end to distributed, non-conservative, compressive loads is considered. It is shown that, for certain cross sections, stability may be lost by either torsional divergence (torsional buckling) or torsional flutter, depending upon the load distribution at the end section. In addition, transverse flutter also can occur, however, not transverse buckling.
