I have found out which truss member that have compressive stress, and which have tensile.

Now I have to select the metal for each member, I know how to find it when it is simple tensile stress (Sigma=Force/Area) But I think there is another equation when it is compressive stress, or?

Do I have to calculate the compressive truss member as a column, and find the critical buckling load?
