MetadataShow full item record
A procedure is described to determine lateral buckling loads for initially straight beams. Loading and beam geometry may vary along the length. Warping rigidity is not considered. End conditions of considerable generality may be treated. The algorithm depends on solving a convergent sequence of sixteenth order eigenproblems . A computer program implementing this procedure has been developed and is described herein.
