Hello(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a steel shaft which is loaded by a pressure force in axis direction.

If I want to calculate the maximum force I have to proof if this is a kink according to Euler or not.

For steel E295 there is a Lambda_p = 89

In my case I calculated that Lambda is 125 --> Lk/i --> i = sqrt(I/A)

Now my question is: What if Lambda is lower than Lambda_p?

What do I have to do in this case?
