A detailed examination of interactive buckling in plain channel sections

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


A finite element analysis that focused on elastic buckling of columns is presented. The key points of interest for the study were the affect of the wandering neutral axis and the assumed effective length of the column. The veracity of assumptions such as the movement of the neutral axis is counteracted by the effects of the fixed end are considered.
