Week 1: Inelastic Buckling of Columns

Introduction to inelastic buckling of columns including the effects of residual stresses and geometric imperfections and the tangent modulus theory.

Week 2: Column Inelastic Buckling Continued

Discuss the history of inelastic column buckling and the implications of the tangent modulus theory.

Week 3: Column Design

Detail column design using the tangent modulus theory and current US and international column bucking curves.

Week 4: Beam Buckling

Introduce beam buckling including solutions using the finite difference and inverse iteration methods. Discuss the effect of uniform moment distribution for different end conditions.

Week 5: Beam Design
