A variable parameter incrementation method is proposed and then applied to the determination of parametric instability boundary of columns. Attention is particularly paid to the geometrically nonlinear problems including the instability of nonlinear vibrations. Although only beam and column problems are treated at present, the approach is believed to be general in methodology. This method is not subjected to the limitations of small exciting parameters and weak nonlinearity.
