This paper presents a theoretical and experimental analysis of buckling load of the circular tube with flattened ends. The buckling tests were conducted on the steel tubes with different length and diameter, and the critical buckling force was determined from the measured relation between the lateral displacement and axial force. Analytical solutions for the critical buckling force of the circular tubes were derived in the series form, and a numerical procedure based on the finite difference method and quasi-Newton method was developed to determine the critical buckling load. The results show that both analytical and numerical solutions were in agreement with those measured from the experiment. Moreover, the effect of flattened part length on the value of the critical buckling force was investigated there. The paper provides a mathematical model of mentioned case and gives us some simplifications calculating the critical buckling force.
