This lesson covers the stability analysis of a beam column, focusing on the energy method, specifically Raleigh's method. It explains how bending and axial compression occur simultaneously in a beam column, and how the energy of axial compression is omitted in the analysis, considering only bending energy. The lesson further discusses the concept of total potential energy and how it is minimized to achieve equilibrium configuration. It also introduces the Rayleigh Ritz method, which involves assuming a suitable shape function for the system's deformation. The lesson concludes with an explanation of how axial load affects the bending moment in a beam column.
