A buckled beam with shallow rise under lateral constraint is considered. The initial rise results from a prescribed end displacement. The beam is modeled as inextensible, and analytical solutions of the equilibria are obtained from a constrained energy minimization problem. For simplicity, the results are derived for the archetypal beam with pinned ends. It is found that there are an infinite number of zero lateral-load equilibria, each corresponding to an Euler buckling mode. A numerical model is used to verify the accuracy of the model and also to explore the effects of extensibility.
