Abstract:
Tests on eight columns bent in antisymmetrical double curvature with h/t = 27.3 are discussed. The columns with small end eccentricities approached a single curvature shape and an unstable condition at failure. The columns with large eccentricities remained in the double curvature shape until failure occurred in tension at the point of maximum applied moment.
