4 Steel column

This example was part of the "Baustatik 2" lecture held by O.Univ.Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Dr.techn. Helmut Rubin at the Technical University in Vienna in autumn 1990.


The example is a steel column with three different sections, and 2 cantilever. Geometry, sections and forces are listed below. Those data shall be calculated and compared.

    • Second order theory forces

    • Deformations

    • Buckling load factor

    • Steel Utilization

Input data



Updated calculations for FEM-Design and Focus Konstruksjon. There are no changes in the results.
