In this article, twist-bend buckling analysis of a cantilever beam subjected to a concentrated end load is conducted using Homotopy Perturbation Method (HPM). Even in the linear stability analysis, obtaining an exact solution for some cases is not an easy task. However, by the use of HPM this difficulty can be overcome easily. This issue is presented with a case study and the results show that HPM can be used successfully in the analysis of twist-bend buckling of beams.
