    The concept of integrating through paper thickness to account for the stress reversal has been extensively applied before for the optimum design of slender cantilever columns. In this the earlier procedure of integrating through the thickness as indicated by the present authors, is used to determine the axial load and bending moment that each section can carry, and this is further used to compute the state of deformation in the structure. This indirect numerical iterative analysis allows the post-buckling behavior of a structure for nonlinearly elastic material to be determined as function of the parameters in the stress-strain laws.
