Question:-
The ratio of the compressive critical load for a long column fixed at both the ends and a column with one end fixed and the other end free is:
Option (A)
1:2
Option (B)
1:4
Option(C)
1:8
Option(D)
1:16
Correct Option:
(D)
Question Solution:
PE = (p2El/L2eq)
P1 = (4p2El/l) ® both end fixed
P2 = (p2El/4l) ® one end fixed and other free
\ (P1/P2) = 16:1
