Always remember, tan, sin and cos, are radians in this equation, not degrees. The Johnson formula is shown as the blue curve, and it corrects for the unrealistically high critical stresses predicted by the Euler curve for shorter columns. Consider a column of length L subject to an axial force F. On one end of the column, the force F is applied a distance e from the central column axis, as shown in the schematic below. The equations using K are shown in the left column, and the equations using C are shown in the right column. For any non-zero value for e, then the deflection is gradual and then quickly grows as the load P increases. Lindeburg, Michael R., "Mechanical Engineering Reference Manual for the PE Exam," 13th Ed. The equation for maximum compressive stress cannot be solved directly for Pcrit, and so the solution must be found iteratively. When a structural member is subjected to a compressive axial force, it's referred as a compression member or a column.

They can be easily replaced with derivations of the more common three: sin, cos and tan. The axial load P, will produce a compression stress P/A. The secant formula can be better understood if it is plotted as function of the slenderness ration, L/r and the pure axial compression stress, P/A. Thus P cannot be solved using algebra but a numerical method is needed such as a root finder or even trial and error. Determine whether the column is safe under both buckling and yielding (due to eccentric load P).

The secant formula can be used to compute the allowable normal stress for a given design.

Gere, James M., "Mechanics of Materials," 6th Ed. If compressive strength is not known, it can be conservatively assumed that compressive strength is equal to tensile strength. Subscribe to receive occasional updates on the latest improvements: The relevant yield strength for column buckling problems is the compressive yield strength. In a formula, it is abbreviated to just 'sec'.

Long columns are analyzed with the Euler formula. ?C���R�N_���/���_���-a�妳F)3�Θ����k�ӑ˳ĕT�*���`��``� 0Œ��@#���h`�5��X�ہ.^���9HK�:���/�\$�~�\$D5,?����Ճ�č����fN7!qQu%�-!XS��;��t�9�� � �m�͎� ]��eH3��F� (� � �Vr� The secant modulus, commonly called the modulus of elasticity in practice, is normally used in designing concrete structures.
