The Buckling of Beams Subjected to Distrbuted Loadings

The elastic buckling of simply supported beams subject to various patterns of distributed loading is considered. The buckling analysis is based on a numerical technique which is an adaptation of that proposed by Newmark for the buckling of columns. The results are presented in the form of design charts which may be used to determine the critical intensity of the load at which buckling will be initiated. Consideration is also given to the variation in the buckled shapes of beams subject to reverse distributed loading, which can vary between the extremes of symmetry and skew-symmetry. Professor B.K.
