Critical Loads of Long Struts

Critical Loads of Long Struts IN calculating the strength of a strut in compression, only two conditions of end fixing are usually considered either the ends are regarded as pinjointed or as encastre. As the latter condition gives a critical load four times that of the former, in the case of long slender struts i.e. large lK, it is an important matter to determine the exact nature of the end fixings. In the majority of practical cases the strut is neither fully encastre nor is it as free from end constraint as a pinjointed strut, the actual condition being intermediate between these limits. There is thus a considerable amount of uncertainty as to the true strength of the strut. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

IN calculating the strength of a strut in compression, only two conditions of end fixing are usually considered either the ends are regarded as pinjointed or as encastre. As the latter condition gives a critical load four times that of the former, in the case of long slender struts i.e. large lK, it is an important matter to determine the exact nature of the end fixings. In the majority of practical cases the strut is neither fully encastre nor is it as free from end constraint as a pinjointed strut, the actual condition being intermediate between these limits. There is thus a considerable amount of uncertainty as to the true strength of the strut.
