Abstract:

Research was concerned with the postbuckling behavior of thin-walled columns. The instability in the elastic and plastic range was considered in Reports Nr. 1 and 2, Contract AF 615141140, AD-212 923, AD-227 149. Further the effect of elevated temperature on buckling was investigated. The ultimate or crippling strength of thin-walled columns, the Euler buckling strength of locally buckled columns, and the failure load of angle sections were determined experimentally. Graphs were prepared to provide for an easy application of the results. A method was proposed for approximately determining the buckling loads of columns at raised temperatures by properly reducing the values at room temperature. These considerations were based on test results taken from the available literature. Author
