Problem 12.25
Given: Assume that the dimensions of the angle section of the pinnedend column shown are t = 0.635
mm, b = 12.0 mm, and L = 559 mm.
Find:
Show by Figure 12.11 that the column fails as a unit by elastic buckling (not local buckling).
Calculate the average stress in the column at the buckling load and compare it to the stress obtained
experimentally.
