Unformatted text preview: circuit consists of two rods AB and BC pin jointed at B. Rod AB has a flexural rigidity EI but rod BC can be considered as completely rigid. AB is built in at A. End C of rod BC is pinned and can slide freely along the line ABC. There is no external support at B. Find the buckling load of the system and discuss the variation of the buckling load as b/a takes all values between  and + . Sketch the buckled form of the system in the principal ranges of b/a P A B C a b Sheet 5 Page 1...
