A couple of non-convex search strategies, based on the genetic algorithm, are suggested and numerically explored in the context of large-deflection analysis of planar, elastic beams. The first of these strategies is based on the stationarity of the energy functional in the equilibrium state and may therefore be considered weak. The second approach, on the other hand, attempts to directly solve the governing differential equation within an optimisation framework and such a solution may be thought of as strong. Several numerical illustrations and verifications with 'exact' solutions, if available, are provided.
