Are linear prebuckling paths and linear stability problems mutually conditional?
- 76 Downloads
Stability problems are termed linear if the tangent stiffness used for determining loss of stability has a specific, simple form. The term “linear prebuckling paths” refers to the shape of the load–displacement diagrams before loss of stability. In this note, it will be shown that these two terms are not mutually conditional.
