Example 2.4

A horizontal strut 2.5 m long is constructed from rectangular section steel, 50 mm wide by 100 mm deep, and mounted with pinned ends. The strut carries an axial load of 120 kN together with a uniformly distributed lateral load of 5 kN/m along its complete length. If E = 200 GN/m2 determine the maximum stress set up in the strut. Check the result using the approximate Perry method with
