A theoretical equation describing the elastic-plastic deformation of a cantilever beam subject to a constant pressure is developed. The theoretical result is compared numerically to the computer program BUCKY for the case of an elastic-perfectly plastic specimen. It is shown that the theoretical and numerical results compare favorably in the plastic range. Comparisons are made to another research code to further validate the BUCKY results. This paper serves as a quality test for the computer program BUCKY developed at NASA Johnson Space Center.
