DYNAMIC STABILITY OF STRUCTURES
STANFORD UNIV CA DEPT OF AERONAUTICS AND ASTRONAUTICS
Pagination or Media Count:
Dynamic stability is defined and classified, and examples are given for various classes of problems. Criteria are developed for practical stability and it is shown that in a practical elastic column tested in a conventional testing machine stress reversal always precedes the attainment of the maximum load. The two coincide, however, in the limit when the initial deviations of the column axis from straightness and the loading speed tend to zero.
