11.1 Stability of Columns In questions below answer true or false. NameEmail1) Column buckling can be caused by tensile axial forces. True False2) Buckling occurs about an axis with minimum area moment of inertia of the cross section. True False3) If buckling is avoided at the Euler buckling load by the addition of supports in the middle, then the column will not buckle. True False4) By changing the supports at the column end, the critical buckling load can be changed. True False5) The addition of uniform transversely distributed forces decreases the critical buckling load on a column. True False6) The addition of springs in the middle of the column decreases the critical buckling load. True False7) Eccentricity in loading decreases the critical buckling load. True False8) Increasing the slenderness ratio increases the critical buckling load. True False9) Increasing the eccentricity ratio increases the normal stress in a column True False10) Material strength governs the failure of short columns and Euler buckling governs the failure of long columns.
