Abstract : Elastic buckling loads are obtained for a family of tapered columns using the Vianello iteration method as refined by Newmark. The family of columns studied by Dinnik is generalized to include columns not symmetric about mid-length. An extensive table of buckling factors is compiled with the aid of a high speed digital computer. Some of Dinnik's results are found to be in error. (Author)
