In the article, we investigate the influence of spring on the large deflections and stability of a spring-hinged cantilever subject to conservative tip force. Using the closed form solution of the equilibrium equation and closed form solution of Jacobi accessory equation, we determine the beam equilibrium forms and their stability. Also, the solution for spring-hinged cantilever bema subject to a follower force is given. Results are present in the graphical and the tabular form.
