I want to find the euler buckling for a open I beam( middle section like a box) that is subjected to three point bending with a point load on top.

I am not so interest in a solution but explanation on how this could be worked out using the euler equation for buckling.

2. Relevant equations

Pcr=(PI^2)EI/L im pretty sure this is for a column with pinned ends but don't know how to work out one for an i beam in 3 point bending

3. The attempt at a solution

Don't want a solution can put numbers in myself
