Im curious to know how to interpret a buckling analysis in which the graph shows buckling on a scale of 1:1 (can be seen in the image below, but the load factor is almost 3000.
Will the part fail? Or is it supposed to have a buckling factor of safety of almost 3000?
I doubt it is the latter since the buckle appears near a 1/2" aluminium tube with 0.0625" thick walls. Theres a 5 kgf downward load and a 5 Nm torque on the part (right face), so I highly doubt that small tube can withstand anything near a 1000 kgf load.
What am I missing?
