Enter the length, elastic modulus, and moment of inertia to determine the buckling load using the calculator.

## Buckling Load Calculation Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the buckling load:

Buckling Load = (π^2 * E * I) / (L^2)

Variables:

- Buckling Load is the critical load at which buckling occurs (N)
- E is the Elastic Modulus of the material (GPa)
- I is the Moment of Inertia of the cross-section (cm^4)
- L is the Length of the column (m)

To calculate the buckling load, plug the values for E, I, and L into the formula and compute the result.

## What is Buckling Load Calculation?

Buckling load calculation refers to the process of determining the critical load at which a structural element will fail due to buckling. Buckling is a failure mode characterized by a sudden sideways deflection of a structural member subjected to high compressive stress. Accurate buckling load calculation is essential for ensuring the safety and stability of structures.
