The Elastic Buckling of Beams Under Mixed Gravity Loading

The elastic behaviour of simply supported beams subject to mixed gravity loading is considered. This loading comprises a full uniformly distributed load acting in conjunction with various patterns of equally spaced concentrated loads. The results of the investigation are presented in the form of a design chart and general equation. These demonstrate the interaction between the distributed and concentrated loads, and may be used in practice to determine the critical values of the individual loads at which buckling will occur.
