Design of Slender Members

“Design of Slender Members” is a series of lectures that deal with the generic problem of how an axially applied load can produce lateral instability, how the magnitude of this load is related to the support of the member, how material properties and cross sectional geometry govern the occurrence of instability and design criteria and how lateral displacement is related to the shortening of the member.
