The Out-of-Plane Instability of a Bending Beam with Multiple Loads


Article Preview

This paper presents the characteristic equation of out-of-plane instability when a bending beam, which is composed of two beams, is under lateral force and vertical force. It clarifies a method which can calculate the out-of-plane instability load of a structural component with main jib and counterbrace.
