Analytical Solution of Elastic-Plastic Buckling of a Square Steel Tube Column under Axial Compressive Load and Bending Moment
Based on Ježek method of computing the elastic-plastic buckling of the member under the axial compressive load and the bending moment, the analytical expressions of calculating the ultimate load of buckling about the neutral axis with the moment of inertia for a square steel tube column are derived. By degenerated into the analytical expressions of the rectangular column and compared with the values of the finite element analysis (FEA) method, it shows that the analytical method in this paper is valid, which provides a new method of theoretical study for the elastic-plastic buckling of the member.
