A bar of length 4m when used as simply supported beam and subjected to a uniform distribution load of 30kN/m over whole span, deflects 15 mm at the center. Determine the crippling loads when it is used as a column with following end conditions.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a)both ends pin-jointed

b)One end fixed and other hinged

c)Both ends fixed

E=(5wl^4)/(348 x inertia x change in length)

So the formula i can use for all the questions is:

P=[ (pi^2)[(5wL^4)/(348 x change in length x inertia)](inertia) ]/L^2

?
