1 Introduction to column buckling


Buckling: Buckling can be defined as the
sudden large deformation of structure due to a
slight increase of an existing load under which
the structure had exhibited little, if any,
deformation before the load was increased.No
failure implied!!!
Reinforced concrete steel
Stability of equilibrium condition
Easy to visualize for a ball on a surface
Note that we use curvature to decide
stability, but the surface can curve up with
zero curvature

Example 1
A 3m column with the cross section shown is constructed from two
pieces of timber, that act as a unit. If the modulus of elasticity of timber
is E=13 GPa, determine a) The slenderness ratio b) Critical buckling
load c) Axial stress in the column when the critical load is applied
