The problem of determining the response of a loaded beam on a bilinear Winkler foundation is solved. The problem of a tensionless foundation is then treated as a limiting case. The nonlinear integral equation formulation is solved numerically. Results for the beam deflections, moments, and shears are presented graphically.
