For a circular column having its ends hinged, the slenderness ratio is 160. The l/d ratio of the column is
If radius R then radius of gyration = R/2.
Now , L ÷ (R/2)=160,
-) L ÷ (D/4)=160,
So, L/D= 40.
For the case of slender column of length 'l’ and flexural rigidity EI built in at its base and free at the top, the Euler's buckling load is
Euler’s buckling load,
For a column fixed at base and free at the top,
Rankine-GordonTormulafor buckling is valid for
The resultant cuts the base of a circular column of diameter ‘d’ with an eccentricity equal to one-fourth of 'd'. The ratio between the maximum compressive stress and the maximum tensile stress is
For a solid circular section, the maximum eccentricity for no tension is d/8.
for e = d/4
The minus sign is due to opposite nature of forces.
A column of length 2.4 m area of cross-section 2,000 mm2 andmoment of inertia of Ixx = 720 x 104 mm4 and Iyy = 80 x 104 mm4 is subjected to buckling load. Both the ends of the column are fixed. What is the slenderness ratio of column?
