Theory of Buckling Load
We want to know Elastic Buckling that is followed
by Boundary Conditions.
① Determine the effective length through experiment
② Determine Buckling Load through compared forces
of each members.
① each members` length = 34cm
② The scale marks set to determine for Buckling
③ The three kinds of the experimental frame
- Strut simply supported at both ends
- Strut with simple support at one end, built-in at the other
- Strut built in at ends
① Given values : length of strut, boundary conditions
② Compute theory that is the Effective length and the
③ Ready to experiment
④ Step by step, loads strut - To find the Buckling load
⑤ Measurement : Experimental values through Buckling
⑥ Compare the theories with experimental values.
