MECHANICS OF MATERIALS

## Sample Problem 10.1

An aluminum column of length L and
rectangular cross-section has a fixed end at B
and supports a centric load at A. Two smooth
and rounded fixed plates restrain end A from
moving in one of the vertical planes of
symmetry but allow it to move in the other
plane.
a) Determine the ratio a/b of the two sides of
the cross-section corresponding to the most
efficient design against buckling.
L = 20 in.
E = 10.1 x 106 psi

## b) Design the most efficient cross-section for

the column.

## Sample Problem 10.1

SOLUTION:
The most efficient design occurs when the
resistance to buckling is equal in both planes of
symmetry. This occurs when the slenderness
ratios are equal.

## Sample Problem 10.2

The uniform column consists of an 8-ft section
of structural tubing having the cross-section
shown.
a) Using Eulers formula and a factor of safety
of two, determine the allowable centric load
for the column and the corresponding
normal stress.

E = 29 106 psi.

## b) Assuming that the allowable load, found in

part a, is applied at a point 0.75 in. from the
geometric axis of the column, determine the
horizontal deflection of the top of the
column and the maximum normal stress in
the column.

## Design of Columns Under Centric Load

Previous analyses assumed
stresses below the proportional
limit and initially straight,
homogeneous columns
Experimental data demonstrate
- for large Le/r, cr follows
Eulers formula and depends
upon E but not Y.
- for small Le/r, cr is
determined by the yield
strength Y and not E.
- for intermediate Le/r, cr
depends on both Y and E.
