Linear vs nonlinear buckling explained!

By |January 24th, 2017|Nonlinear FEA, Stability|

Choosing between linear buckling and nonlinear buckling in given case can be difficult. Both approaches have positive and negative aspects. I explain here what are the differences, and when to use each analysis. I promise not to use complicated mathematics, nor highly theoretical approach. Instead, I will use a simple example to easily describe differences. [...]
