Problem 12.18 Given: A steel (E=200 GPa) column with a solid circular cross section has clamped ends, is 2.50 m long and must support a load of 40.0 kN. Find: a) the minimum required diameter using a factor of safety of SF = 2.00 b) What is the minimum value for the proportional limit for the column to buckle elastically? Solution: a) E 200 GPa := L 2.5 m := SF 2.0 := P4 0 k N := I π d 4 64 = P
