Inelastic cyclic buckling

Cyclic-strain-softening cold-rolled 1020 steel buckled under fully reversed cyclic stressing at two thirds the monotonic buckling stress while cyclic-strain-hardening 2024-T4 aluminum had essentially the same or slight increases in cyclic buckling stresses compared to monotonic values
