Employing the method developed in Part 1, the practical engineering design aspects are treated for the selected problem of an eccentrically loaded thin strut. The strut is made to experience large elastic deflections, and the end supports are simultaneously pinned and restrained by torsion bar springs. Realistic values, ranges, and combinations of physical parameters are assigned and design curves, data, and tables are presented. The paper is so written that the engineer may use Part 2 independent of study of Part 1 if he so desires to bypass the mathematical and property study of the solution of the defining equations.
