this paper presents a review of current knowledge of the buckling of concrete in relation to its use in bridge structures. shell behaviour is excluded. lateral instability of beams has received little attention, but current design methods appear to provide adequate margins of safety. the buckling behaviour of simple concrete columns is well researched and fairly well understood. buckling of panels has been investigated for simple cases only, and this research does not appear to cover areas in which problems may occur in bridges. a brief description is given on types of instability which are peculiar to concrete structures.(a)
