The purpose of this paper is to investigate the existence of symmetric positive solutions for a class of fourth-order boundary value problem: , , , , where , . By using a monotone iterative technique, we prove that the above boundary value problem has symmetric positive solutions under certain conditions. In particular, these solutions are obtained via the iteration procedures.
