• Long slender members subjected to
an axial compressive force are called
columns.
• The lateral deflection that occurs is
called buckling.

column to buckle and therefore
deflect laterally

To Understand The Concept:
• When the bar are in the
vertical position, the spring
having the stiffness k, is
unstretched.
• FBD, the bar are displaced by
pin at A which produce force
F=k∆.

6
The spring will produce the
force,

Restoring spring force become:

•Stable equilibrium
The force developed by the spring would be
adequate to restore the bars back to their
vertical position.

•Unstable equilibrium
If the load P is applied and a slight displacement
occurs at A, the mechanism will tend to move out
of equilibrium and not be restored to its original
positions.

•Neutral equilibrium
Any slight disturbance given to the mechanism
will not cause it to move further out of
equilibrium, nor will it be restored to its original
position. Instead, the bars will remain in the
deflected position.

• When the critical load P
cr
is
reached, the column is on the
verge of becoming unstable, so
that a small lateral force F will
cause the column to remain in the
deflected position when F is
removed.
• In order to determine the critical
load and buckled shape of the
column, the followed equation is
used:-

• Equation 3 is homogeneous,
second order, linear
differential equation
which is similar to simple
harmonic equation.
Using methods of differential equation or by direct substitution,
general solution for equation 3 can be written as follows:
) 4 ____( ) x ( sin B ) x ( cos A y o + o =
10
• At x=0, y=0, then from equation (4), A=0 and equation (4) become as:-

y=B sin (ox)_____(5)

• At x=L, y=0, then from equation (5):-

0= B sin (oL)

• If B=0, It means no deflection occur in the column. Therefore, B=0,
but:-
sin (oL)=0
(oL)= t, 2t, 3t, 4t, …….nt, if o, n=0

• The smallest value of P is obtained when n=1,
• (oL)= t or

Least Moment of Inertia
• A column will buckle about
the principal axis of the
cross section having the
least moment of inertia (the
weakest axis).
• As in picture, the column will
buckle at the a-a axis not the
b-b axis.

• Pcr=critical or max axial load
on the column just before it
must not cause the stress in
the column to exceed the
proportional limit.
• E=modulus of elasticity
material.
• I=least moment of inertia for
the column cross-sectional

• The Euler formula was derived with the assumptions that
the load P is always applied through the centroid of the
columns’s cross-sectional area and that the column is
perfectly straight.

• This is quite unrealistic since manufactured columns are
never perfectly straight.

• In reality, columns never suddenly buckle; instead they
begin to bend although ever so slightly , immediately upon

• Therefore, load P will be applied to the column at a short
eccentric distance e from the centroid of the cross section.

columns never suddenly buckle. instead they begin to bend although ever so slightly . • This is quite unrealistic since manufactured columns are never perfectly straight. load P will be applied to the column at a short eccentric distance e from the centroid of the cross section.The Secant Formula • The Euler formula was derived with the assumptions that the load P is always applied through the centroid of the columns’s cross-sectional area and that the column is perfectly straight. • Therefore. • In reality. immediately upon application of the load. 35 .
