Exercise 10.6 uses column buckling data recorded during the lab sessions.
Lab 4 description is
provided in Section 26.5, entitled "The ITL Buckling Demo," of Lecture 26.
Lab 4 data for Southwell Plots required in HW Exercise 10.6 follow. The "offset" numbers listed therein were not directly measured, but obtained by trial and error so that plots look OK in the lower end. Those offset values should be subtracted from each measured deflection. Also do not forget to scale the tray load by 4/3 to get the actual load applied to the specimen. Data below is that recorded in 2015 lab sections - posted to expedite this weeks homework.
