Structural Instability

Problem No. (1) :

The system shown in Figure 1 consists of

two bars AB and BC, each of bending

stiffness EI elastically hinged together at B

by a spring of stiffness K (i.e. bending

moment applied by spring = K * change in

slope across B).

Regarding A and C as simple pin-joints,

obtain an equation for the first buckling load

of the system. What are the lowest buckling

loads when :
