With the continuing effort to reduce weight in engineering structures, load-carrying members are being made more slender and of smaller total cross-sectional area by the application of tubular I-section channels and thin plates. With this trend toward more slender and thinner walled structural members has come the problem of compressive elastic buckling of these members. The work given herein is a method to predict buckling loads in structures with ordinary boundary conditions and also subject to additional stiffness is the form of rectilinear and rotational springs attached at discrete pints in the structure.
