Abstract

The structural members examined in the previous chapters responded in a stable manner when subjected to dynamic loads. However, in practice, dynamic loads may cause an unstable response. This chapter examines the dynamic progressive buckling phenomenon [4.1], which is illustrated in figure 4.1 for a circular tube.
