Calculation Example - Annular cross section, Stress. Featured

A strain gage is located at D on the surface of the rod AB. The average normal stress on the rod is σ when the rod is subjected to forces F as on the sketch. Assume that the cross section at D is annular and the outer diameter DEXT, calculate the inner diameter DINT of the cross section at D.

Calculation Example – Buckling of Column (EC3).

Check the column for buckling according to EC3. HEB300/S275 and axial force NEd=1000KN. The column (L=15m) is pinned at the two far ends (strong axis y-y). The column is pinned every 5m at the weak axis z-z.
