Document Type: Journal Paper


Inelastic buckling behavior of concentrically loaded strut having reduced rectangular cross section as mid-section; buckling model is similar to that originally used by F.R.Shanley, but in present model, solid rectangular cross section is introduced which permits detailed exploration of stress distribution across section; influence of slight differences in shape of stress strain curve is demonstrated with reference to inelastic column behavior.
