Night School 14: Fundamentals of Stability Part 5

Stability of Structural Systems

This lecture will begin with a review of basic concepts related to the stability of structural systems. With an eye towards design, the difference between a bifurcation or critical load analysis and the loss in stiffness due to second-order effects and material yielding, as the maximum resistance of physical structures is approached, will be emphasized. The lecture will conclude with an overview of the direct analysis and effective length methods.

This presentation is part of the eight session Night School course on Fundamentals of Stability.
