What are the assumptions of Euler's Theory in column.
1 Answer

Assumptions made in Euler's Theory

  • The column is initially perfectly straight and is axially loaded.
  • The section of the column is uniform.
  • The column material is perfectly elastic, homogeneous and isotropic and obeys Hooke's Law.
  • The length of the column is very large compared to the lateral dimensions.
  • The direct stress is very small compared with the bending stress corresponding to the buckling condition.
  • The self-weight of the column is neglected.
  • The column will fail by buckling only.
