Pagination or Media Count:
A study of single-span initially bent columns is made and extended to include two-span columns. The axial force in these columns results from heating or an equivalent and from bowing. A snap-through phenomenon is considered in the analysis of the single-span and observations are made concerning snap-through in the two-span column. A digital computer program is developed to carry out the analysis and a description of the program enables its use by anyone familiar with the FORTRAN language. Author
