Column strength test

The extraordinary strength of the humble cylinder.

 

"The cylinders will hold up to four or five times more weight than square columns.

Significantly more strength can be obtained from the same type and the same quantity of building materials simply by choosing the correct shape.

The walls of a cylinder are free of edges where the force of a compressing load can become concentrated so the load is carried nearly equally by all parts of the cylinder. In other words, all parts of the cylinder share the load.

Secondly, cylinders do not deform easily under an increasing load so that all parts continue to contribute strength until finally collapsing. In square columns, the load soon deforms the walls so that the weight is soon being carried only at the edges with the remaining parts of the wall not contributing to the total strength.''
