Gere, Theory of Elastic Stability, 2nd Edition, McGraw-Hill Book Co. Inc., New York, NY, 1961, pg. 78, article 2.7. Analysis Type(s): Static Analysis (ANTYPE = 0) with Large Deflection Element Type(s): 2-D Elastic Beam Elements (BEAM3) Input Listing: vm136.dat Test Case A slender bar of cross-sectional height h, and area A, fixed at the base and free at the upper end, is loaded with a value larger than the critical buckling load. Determine the displacement (∆X, ∆Y, Θ) of the free end and display the deformed shape of the bar at various loadings. Figure 136.1 Buckled...
