Beam is one of the fundamental elements in complex structures. It is very significant to clarify its stability under the various circumstances. In particular, the buckling phenomenon, which is characterized as a pitchfork bifurcation, has accepted much interest by many researchers. In this paper, we propose a stabilization control method for the first-mode buckling phenomenon in the clamped-clamped beam without feedback control. We analyze the stability of a buckled beam under high frequency excitation in linear theory. It is theoretically clarified and experimentally that the high-frequency excitation shifts the bifurcation point (the critical compressive force) and prevents the beam buckling.
