Homework Help: Yielding vs buckling comparison

  1. Jan 7, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    http://www.continuummechanics.org/eccentriccolumnbuckling.ht [Broken]

    In here , i was told that for the eccentrically loaded column , the column will fail due to before it buckles .
    How is that possible ?
    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    The column will start to buckle first before it break due to yielding , right ?
