Abstract : An analysis of experiments performed on columns of variable cross-section, columns with various boundary conditions and plate elements with nonuniform prebuckle stress states is made. Data from experiments on plate elements in which the prebuckle stress state is nonuniform indicate that the conditions necessary for the applicability of the Southwell method are satisfied for the two types of specimens tested.
