Creep buckling of columns

Joseph Kempner, Sharad A. Patel
Jan 1954

Formulas are presented for the determination of the creep deflection-time characteristics of an initially curved idealized H-section column. The results were obtained from closed-form solutions on the differential equation of bending (derived in NACA TN-3137) of a beam column whose creep properties are of a nonlinearly viscoelastic nature.
