Mechanics of Materials
- Explain the engineering definition of the word “column.”
- Visualize and sketch the buckled geometry of a pin-pin column.
- Visualize the differences in the behavior of stocky columns and slender columns.
- Explain the phases of a slender column that is incrementally loaded to failure.
- Compute the critical buckling load for a pin-pin column (K=1.0).
