Column is a compression member, which is subjected to axial force or eccentric force, which causes either direct stress or direct and bending stress. If load on column is excess then the column is likely to buckle and this nature of buckling differs from its end conditions. A column can be either short, medium or long depending on mode of its failure. A column which fails due to crushing is called short column. These column do not buckle due to axial load. Medium column fails due to both direct stress and buckling stress and in long columns failure is due to buckling.
