From the experimental investigation detailed herein it has been determined, at least for two types of struts, that there is a very close correlation between (1) the experimentally determined buckling load which a given strut will sustain and 2) the critical load determined by the use of Southwell's method, which does not entail loading the strut to its critical load. By using an initial eccentricity and loads considerably less that the critical, the critical load may be derived from the results of three or four simple test readings, not requiring an elaborate or refined setup.
