It is shown that the utilization of the Filonenko-Borodich set of functions, as the comparison functions in the Boobnov-Galerkin method leads to the result that coincides with the closed-form solution for the clamped-clamped uniform beam under uniformly distributed load. It is hoped that this remarkable, direct coincidence could be used in graduate courses and books on mechanics of solids.
