On the basis of the refined theory of orthotropic plates of variable thickness, the equations of the beam bending problem are obtained with the simultaneous action of compressive forces and transverse load. It is accepted that the edges of the beam have an elastically clamped support and the reduction of the compressive force by the support due to friction is taking into account. Passing to dimensionless quantities, a certain problem is solved. The stability of a beam is discussed. Based on the results obtained, conclusions are drawn.
