Tag: Column Curves Buckling of Columns

Columns are compression members whose cross-sectional dimensions are relatively small compared with their length in the direction of the compressive force. Failure of such members occurs because of instability when a certain axial load Pc (called critical or Euler load) is equated or exceeded. The member may bend, or buckle, suddenly and collapse. Hence the strength P of a column is not determined by
