`S_BucklingLoad`

## Purpose

general script for determining the buckling load of a structural model

## Synopsis

`This is a script file.`

## Description

BUCKLINGLOAD general script for determining the buckling load of a structural model the scripts sets up the linear and the geometric stiffness of a structural model with its geometry and boundary conditions in MODEL and its element properties IN ELEMDATA; before invoking the script it is necessary to define the reference load in Loading, so that it can be applied in Step 2 for determining the axial forces in the elements and with them the total structure stiffness Kt in the undeformed configuration; the geometric stiffness Kg is determined by subtracting the initial stiffness Kl from Kt

## Cross-Reference Information

This function calls:

- Structure performs requested action on group of elements
- Initialize_SolStrat default values for most solution strategy parameters
- Initialize_State initialize state variables of structural model and create STATE
- S_InitialStep script for initial step of incremental analysis
