Methods for determining critical values of nonconservative loads in stability problems of mechanical systems with distributed parameters are considered in this work. Based on a dynamic approach to stability problems, the method of direct integration of the linearized equation of perturbed motion is proposed, and the problem of determining critical loads is reduced to the problem of minimizing a complex function of several variables. As a second method, the method of decomposition of the solution of the equation of perturbed motion in the forms of natural oscillations is presented. The fundamentals of the application of the finite element method to the problems of stability under the action of non-conservative loads are also described. The methods are illustrated on classical problems: the stability of the cantilever rod under the action of potential and tracking forces and the stability of the pipeline section with flowing liquid. The accuracy and convergence of the latter two methods are analyzed depending on the number of members in the series and the number of finite elements.
