Determine the critical buckling load of an axially loaded long slender bar of length
has a cross-sectional height h, and area A. with hinged ends. The bar Figure 128.1 Buckling Bar Problem Sketch Material Properties

= 200 in
A = 0.25 in 2
h = 0.5 in Loading
F = 1 lb Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes
Only the upper half of the bar is modeled because of symmetry. The boundary conditions become free-fixed for
the half symmetry model. The bar is assumed to have a rectangular cross-section (thickness = A/h = 0.5 in). AN...
