Stabilizing force

Fc = C · w = 2 · PL · w01 - PPe

Fc Lateral stabilization force
C Spring stiffness of the lateral support
w Lateral deflection of the buckling member in the middle
P. Compression axial force in the buckling member
L. Span between support and support spring
w0 Pre -deformation from precamber due to geometric imperfection
Pe Critical load of the buckling member
