Lesson 27

Columns III

Learning outcomes

    1. Calculate the two slenderness ratios that correlate to buckling about the two centroidal axes.
    2. Explain the significance of the slenderness ratio and how it relates to column buckling.
    3. Use the governing slenderness ratio to compute the critical buckling load for a column.
