AAE 352 Summer 2010 Euler’s stability criterion A system is neutrally stable if – at a particular critical load – nearby or “proximate” equilibrium states also appear “Proximate” means “very near.” At neutral stability there is are two or possibly many different deflected shapes in addition to the one we have in mind We lose control of which state the system takes

AAE 352 Summer 2010 Axial compressive loads placed on structural elements such as Columns Plates Shells Critical values of compression cause the structure to move sideways and develop bending loads lateral (side) deflections occur - they may be large Axial stiffness is reduced-it is easier to move the ends together Also torsion loads that create critical shear loads
