Tag: Elastic buckling Elastic Flexural Buckling of Columns

A member subjected to pure compression, such as a column, can fail under axial load in either of two modes. One is characterized by excessive axial deformation and the second by flexural buckling or excessive lateral deformation. For short, stocky columns, Eq. (3.48) relates the axial load P to the compressive stress ƒ. After the stress exceeds the yield point of the material,
