Instability of a linear dipolar rod, or Timoshenko beam, is treated without uncoupling the pair of governing partial differential equations, It is shown by modified logarithmic arguments, that at and above the critical load both components of displacement grow in norm for large time. Useful information on post-buckling behaviour of the rod is thereby provided. © 1978.
