This paper presents the results of experimental investigation of the buckling behavior of thin-walled box-section column. The experiments for finding the buckling stress and bifurcation slenderness ratio are performed by the method from AISC. The sets of boundary conditions are both end simply supported, one end simply supported and the other end clamped, and both ends clamped. The types of specimens are clssified by thickness to width ratio. The experiments for the thin-walled rectangular tubes are closely concurrent with the theoretical values of overall buckling load and bifurcation slenderness ratio that are suggested by the part (I) of this paper.
