Civil Engineering ⇒ Topic : Columns and struts
|A member subjected to compressive stress is
termed as post, strut or pillar. Main supporting
members of building are generally called columns
The load carried by short column is
P = p X A
where, p is the intensity of stress and A is the area of cross-section of the column.
A column that fails primarily due to direct stress is called a short column and the one that fails primarily due to the bending stress is called the long column.
