Mechanical characterization of the commercial S460MC and PVC tubes. (a) Stress-strain curves and (b) load-displacement curves and critical instability loads for the axial compression of tubes between flat parallel platens. The differences in strength of both materials justify the existence of two vertical axes in both plots. S460MC carbon steel refers to the left vertical axis while PVC refers to the right vertical axis.
