How to simulate bifurcation due to buckling for a simply supported beam using ABAQUS?

I want to capture bifurcation phenomenon observed during buckling for a simply supported beam using ABAQUS simulations.

I have performed linear perturbation analysis to extract mode shapes and critical buckling load. Model consisted of 100, B21 elements.

Then I have modelled a similar beam with imperfection equal to 1st mode shape with amplitude of 1e-8.

After performing multiple static analysis with load varying from 95 N to 105 N with step of 0.5 N (critical buckling load of the beam being 100 N for 1st mode shape), the deformation produced in the beam was proportional to the load applied.

It is expected that there should be a substantial increase in deformation once the load applied crosses buckling load. But this is not happening!

Could someone please suggest an analysis procedure to capture bifurcation phenomenon?
