The aim of this paper is to present a simple and visual method for investigation of generalized bar-models (i.e., bars which undergo shear deformation, sandwich bars, etc.). First, the paper defines two basic bar types: the first one develops bending deformation only, while the second one undergoes shear deformation only, further, formal algebraic operations are introduced, with the help of which we define generalized bars. The formal operands of these operations are different basic bars. The effect of the different rigidities of the generalized bars on their behaviour becomes clearly visible. We use this method mainly for the stability analysis of bars.
