Flutter and divergence instabilities are theoretically and experimentally analyzed in elastic structures with internal and external
damping. Despite of the fact that only the former (and not the latter) was believed to be a destabilizing effect, it is theoretically demonstrated
that the external damping plays a role similar to internal damping, so that both yield a pronounced destabilization paradox (in the Ziegler sense).
This finding and other features of the Beck and Pflueger columns are substantiated by an experimental campaign in which the follower forces
are obtained via dry friction with a newly designed experimental apparatus.
