A homogeneous rod with a constant cross section, vertically mounted and cantilevered, is considered. At the unstrained state, the rod’s axis is straight. It is supposed lateral stiffness is that the rod buckles in static conditions only under gravity and its axis bends. Flexural oscillations of the rod when its base vibrates vertically are investigated. Stabilization circumstances of the rod axis rectilinearity depending on excitation parameters, internal and external damping, and rod flexibility are determined.
