The nonlinear theory of elastic round rods is split into a vector equation concerning the properties of finite inextensional flexural deflections and a scalar equation concerning torsional deformations. In particular, the related boundary conditions examined for the case of a Cardan joint. The buckling configurations of a rod under tension and torsion, constrained at both ends by Cardan joints, are determined by the linearized form of the above theory and compared with previous findings about the rod with cylindrical end hinges.
