Structure buckling

  • Buckling failure occurs when a component has experienced a compressive load in excess of its buckling capacity, which is normally much lower than its simple compressive yield failure point.  Traditional hand calulations can be used to determine buckling capacity for simple structures, or Finite Element Analysis (FEA) can be used for more complex conditions.
