10.1 Introduction Column = vertical prismatic members subjected to compressive forces Goals of this chapter: 1. Study the stability of elastic columns 2. Determine the critical load P cr 3. The effective length 4. Secant formula
Previous chapters: -- concerning about (1) the strength and (2) excessive deformation (e.g. yielding) This chapter: -- concerning about (1) stability of the structure (e.g. bucking)

10.2 Stability of Structures allow P A σ = < cr PL AE δ = < 2 2 ( )sin ( ) cr L P K θ = (10.1) sin ∆ ≈ ∆ (10.2) Concerns before: New concern: Stable? Unstable?
2 2 ( ) ( ) cr L P K θ = sin ≈ ∆ 4 / cr P K L = (10.2) The system is stable, if The system is unstable if Since 4 / cr P K L < 4 / cr P K L A new equilibrium state may be established

2 2 ( )sin ( ) L P M K θ = = 4 sin PL K = The new equilibrium position is: 4 sin PL K = (10.3) or
After the load P is applied, there are three possibilities: 1. P < P cr – equilibrium & θ = 0 -- stable 2. P > P cr – equilibrium & θ = θ -- stable 3. P > P cr unstable – the structure collapses, θ = 90 o
