Construction Engineering Reference from C.H.I.P.S.
Exact Solutions for Buckling of Structural Members
by C.M. Wang, C.Y. Wang and J. N Reddy
 Compiles analytical solutions for a variety of structural elements and most standard structural problems
 Focuses on buckling that is characterized by bifurcation, static and elastic, and elastoplastic
 Serves as a reference source for numerical solutions and for courses on buckling
 Includes a list of reference papers on analytical solutions of various types of structural elements and boundary conditions
This book condenses closed form buckling solutions of columns, beams, arches, rings, plates and shells from the vast literature into a single volume. It begins with an introduction to elastic buckling and the importance of elastic buckling load. The following chapters present coverage of flexural buckling solutions for columns under various loads, restraints, and boundary conditions; the exact flexuraltorsional buckling solutions of beams; and the buckling solutions of circular arches and rings. Also included in these chapters are discussions of the effect of transverse shear deformation on the buckling load of columns and the flexuraltorsional buckling of columns for thinwalled members with open profiles. The final chapters discuss the elastic buckling of plates under inplane loads and buckling solutions for cylindrical and spherical shells.
With coverage of a wide range of buckling load problems, this innovative reference provides engineers and researchers benchmarks for assessing the validity, convergence, and accuracy of solutions obtained by numerical methods.
