Euler’s Theory of Column Buckling

Euler's theory of column buckling is used to estimate the critical buckling load of column since the stress in the column remains elastic. The critical buckling load is the maximum load that a column can withstand when it ...

What is Center of Mass and Center of Gravity?

The center of mass of a system of particles is a specific point at which, for many purposes, the system's mass behaves as if it were concentrated. In another word, center of mass is the point at which the distribution of ...

Types of Seismic Control System in Building Structures

Different types of seismic control systems are used in earthquake-resistant design that serves the purpose of reducing the action of earthquake forces on the main structural system. Generally, there are three types of seismic control systems namely passive, ...

Cantilevered Beams and Trusses- Uses and Advantages

A cantilever is a rigid structural member such as beam fixed at one end to a commonly vertical support from which it protrudes. It can also be constructed with trusses or slabs or metal girder. When subjected to a structural load, ...

What is Detailed Design of Structures?

Detailed design, which takes on and develops the approved conceptual design, is a stage where the design is refined and plans are set. The result of the detailed design is the complete and precise physical description of all ...

What is Lateral Torsional Buckling in Beams?

Lateral torsional buckling is a buckling phenomenon observed in unrestrained beams. When a beam subjected to loads results in both lateral displacement and twisting, then it is said to undergo lateral-torsional buckling. More causes ...

What are the Types of Frame Structures?

Different types of frame structures are available that have been used in building construction. They are classified into two major types namely rigid frame structure and braced frame structure. These are further divided into various forms for instance the former is ...
