Mechanics of Long Beam Columns


Beam columns are defined as structural beams subjected to axial and transverse loads. Buckling of columns is often analyzed separately in consideration of boundary conditions. Axial forces are assumed to be constant throughout. Beam response to these loads, whether considered separately or combined, is well documented [1,2].
