Abstract: The general post-critical characteristics of a discrete structural system with independent loading parameters are studied. Attention is restricted to elastic conservative systems which satisfy certain analytical symmetry conditions and which lose their initial stability at a 'symmetric special' critical point. The results are compared with Koiter's 'stable symmetric' and 'unstable symmetric' bifurcation points, and three theorems are established.
