In this post, I will go over the sixth example in our mechanics of materials course covering column buckling. The goal of this example is to calculate the critical buckling load for a rectangular wood / timber column fixed at the bottom and pinned at the top. The engineering problem statement states, The 14 ft…

In this post, I will go over the third example in our mechanics of materials course covering column buckling. The goal of this example is to calculate the critical buckling load for a pinned rectangular wood / timber column. The engineering problem statement states, The 14 ft wooden rectangular column is pinned at both ends….

In this post, I will go over the second example in our mechanics of materials course covering column buckling. The goal of this example is to calculate the maximum axial capacity for a steel column braced about the weak axis. The engineering problem statement states, The W6 x 15 steel column shown below is 30…
