**Buckling Load Calculator - centrally loaded column**

This section first calculates the critical slenderness ratio, C_{c}
for the material whose properties are entered, compares this C_{c}
value with the slenderness ratio of the column and if the slenderness ratio
is greater than C_{c}, the buckling load is calculated by the Euler formula,
whereas if the slenderness ratio is less than C_{c}, the Johnson formula is used.

Enter the values in the units shown into the boxes then click on the 'Calculate' button.
