Abstract: The basic relationship is established between the stress-strain curve obtained from a stub column test and the basic column strength curve. Charts are prepared to allow the prediction of the buckling load of steel columns from stub column results. This approach simplifies the process of predicting column strength and eliminates full-scale column tests and the measurement of residual stresses.
