Existence results for a class of one-dimensional abstract variational problems with volume constraints are established. The main assumptions on their energy are additivity, translation invariance and solvability of a transition problem. These general results yield existence results for nonconvex problems. A counterexample shows that a naive extension to higher dimensional situations in general fails.
