It is shown that the prediction of buckling loads of columns that are very weak in shear is crucially dependent on the choice of direction for the axial load of the column in the buckled configuration. Examples are given showing the wide differences in buckling load predicted by different choices. The results are applicable to columns of sandwich construction, springs, and multilayer elastomeric bearings for isolation systems.
