The authors detected some errors in the main text of the above mentioned article [1], which the publisher would like to correct.

The correct versions of Equations 2, 5 and 7 are given below.
$$ {g}_{\mathrm{I}}=\frac{P^2}{2B}\frac{dC}{da} $$
$$ {g}_{\mathrm{I}}=\frac{P^2{a}^2}{BEI}=\frac{12{P}^2{a}^2}{B^2{h}^3E} $$
$$ {g}_{\mathrm{I}}=\frac{P^2}{B\sqrt[3]{EI}}{\left(\frac{3\delta }{2P}\right)}^{2/3} $$
