Hi all I was hoping someone could remove some doubt in my mind with regards to interpreting the Second Moment Of Area and Eulers formula for buckling. Am I correct in thinking that:- - The higher the Second Moment Of Area Value the more resistant to bending. - The lower the Second Moment Of Area Value the less resistant to bending. Using Eulers formula for buckling I have calculated the critical load for a column in the X and Y axis, my values are:- Ix = 25.39N Iy = 634N Am I correct in interpreting these results as the column will buck in the x axis first because it will only take 25.39N of load before it buckles - is this correct? I can do the math it is the concept I struggle with (doesn't help that I have a crap tutor). thank you.
