The buckling eigenvalues of a euler beam - consisting of QUAD elements - which is under pressure are calculated. Thereafter a limit load iteration via third order theory is done (with and without taking imperfections into account).You will find the input data file viaTEDDY > help > examples... > ase > english > ase9_quad_euler_beam.datLevel of difficulty: beginners
