Abstract

In this chapter we analyse the stability of equilibrium positions of bars under compressive loads. Methods are presented which will enable us to determine the so-called critical load under which a bar deflects due to buckling. The aim is to enable students to apply the appropriate methods in order to determine critical loads.
