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.
