Building Up—Columns and Buckling

Lecture no. 5 from the course: Understanding the World's Greatest Structures

Building Up—Columns and Buckling

Taught by Professor Stephen Ressler | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

One of the most potent human aspirations supported by engineering is to build up. Learn how this has been done from antiquity to the present with columns—structural members that carry load primarily in compression. You'll also learn about buckling: the often catastrophic stability failure that occurs in columns with certain geometric characteristics.
