Five Useful Stability Concepts

A theoretical evaluation of stability requires a second-order analysis in which equilibrium is established for the deflected portion of the structure rather than a typical first-order analysis. This presentation reviews these five important stability concepts:

  • Loss of stiffness as the buckling load is approached
  • Inelastic column buckling
  • Importance of end connection details in built-up columns
  • Stiffness and strength required for braces
  • Lean-on bracing systems

This course is based on a past AISC Live Webinar.
