Laterally Loaded Struts. An Alternative to Perry's Approximation

WITH the growing use of the load factor method of design in place of the "Factor of Safety ” method, more especially in connection with struts, where applied load and stress caused, do not bear a linear relation to one another, and particularly in aeronautical structures, it becomes necessary to calculate stresses at "factored” loads nearer the Euler Critical Load than heretofore. (The principle of the load factor method is, of course, to calculate the stress caused by design load multiplied by the load factor, i.e., "the factored load," and to ensure such stress is not above the yield stress.)
