Increasing the load after that will cause the post-buckling deflections.

The first method is usually easiest, as any sympathetic load will usually work. So the critical load is 2.

However for our stubborn cylinder we have to introduce an eccentricity. We also have to be aware that if we use linear buckling on a structure that is more like the intermediate category, then we are likely to get a non-conservative over estimate of the buckling load. Designing occupant friendly interiors that meet requirements in both safety and style, necessitates the extensive A linear buckling analysis is carried out.

An axial load of a nominal 1KN is applied to the top of a thin-walled cylinder. An important question is: Ensure your structures can withstand outside stresses with these methods.


The critical load that will cause the first buckling mode is calculated from the nominal load 1KN multiplied by the eigenvalue 2. If the model is perturbed just slightly, then kinear have guaranteed that it will buckle to one side versus the other, but it will still buckle at the same load, and shape, for mode 1. The stresses and displacements in the nonlinear case are meaningful. All methods can benefit from our understanding of the linear buckling mode.

Well there were two things. In practice, the model should now be investigated for sensitivity to initial workbencch eccentricity and preferably comparing several forms of induced eccentricity.

After that, the deflection takes off. In an assembly of elements in an FEA model there will be a subtle interaction between the original linear stiffness matrix and the stress dependent stiffness matrix.

The displacements are arbitrary and therefore the strains and stresses are as well. Many structural components are sufficiently stiff that they will never suffer any form of instability. No material content will be absolutely homogeneous. Can we use the stresses calculated from the mode shape and often shown in a linear buckling analysis?

In fact this region would rapidly exceed yield in practice, but a linear material model has been used. Key point plot; stress response at key element.


The boundary condition assumptions for buckling are also critical. If you increase the scale factor of the perturbed shape, then eventually the buckling analysis starts to get higher results, because the buckling shape is now finding a different mode than the original. Boy was I wrong.

The overall response in Fig. The other alternative is to capture the linear buckling mode shape and apply this back to the structural mesh as an initial distortion. Corresponding points A, B and C correlate well with Fig. When a structure buckles it has less bukcling to load.

So, now you know that there is no need to do a second Eigenvalue buckling, and hopefully I have at least shown you that it is much easier to do your post-buckling analysis in ANSYS Workbench than it used to be. We will go into nonlinear buckling shortly, but basically it allows a continuous load build up and then transition to buckling.

A small displacement of a perturbed shape is assumed in each element that induces a stress dependent stiffening effect. Tony Abbey is a consultant analyst with his own company, FETraining.
