Critical Loads of Columns with Pinned Supports The problems for Section 11.3 are to be solved using the assumptions of ideal, slender, prismatic, linearly elastic columns (Euler buckling). Buckling occurs in the plane of the figure unless stated otherwise. Problem 11.3-1 Calculate the critical load P cr for a steel column (see figure) having length and under the following conditions: (a) The column buckles by bending about it’s strong axis (axis 1-1), and (b) the column buckles by bending about its weak axis (axis 2-2). In both cases, assume that the column has pinned ends.
