ABSTRACT The manuscript reviews the history and quo of the theory of Timoshenko’s method in stability analysis of compressive levers first, taking an example to explain the m-simulation method and putting forward the 3rd-7th boundary conditions demonstrating their superiorities in improving the precision through examples, followed by proposing and applying the join conditions in the stability analysis of combined axial force compressive levers gaining success. Through a brief example showing the effect of some related theories in a simple structural stability analysis, its application prospect is discussed.
