Grahic Jump Location
Sandwich column in (a) initial state and (b) deflected state; (c,d) cross-section rotation, shear angle and shear force due to axial load
Grahic Jump Location
Column loaded (a) under load control (e.g., by gravity) and (b) displacement control
Grahic Jump Location
Shear deformation of an element of sandwich column under initial axial forces F=P/2; (a) with second-order axial extension γ2/2, and (b) at no axial extension
