Calculation Example – Critical load. Featured

A solid rod has a diameter of 20 mm and is 600 mm long. It is made of a material that can be modeled by the stress–strain diagram shown in the figure below. If it is used as a pin-supported column, determine the critical load.

Determine the minimum diameter of the rod. The axial tensile force is P=10KN. The allowable stresses in tension and shear is 100MPa and 40MPa.
