Tag: Local Buckling 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

Tag: Local Buckling Compression

Compressive forces can produce local or overall buckling failures in a steel member. Overall buckling is the out-of-plane bending exhibited by an axially loaded column or beam (Art. 6.17). Local buckling may manifest itself as a web failure beneath a concentrated load or over a reaction or as buckling of a flange or web along the length of a beam
