The article presents graphical methods for determine critical loads of column and beam elements based on experimental results. The author presents the principles of using each method and the results of author's experimental tests on the instability phenomenon of planar steel truss with imperfections. The discussed methods were used to determine critical load of the tested truss, next compared with the results of numerical analysis. The validity of methods for determining the critical moment in the truss analysis has been confirmed.
