What is the total deformation in buckling analysis ?

      In the non-linear buckling analysis, does the total deformation represent the collapse of the column length?

      Unclear question. But, I believe you are trying to understand where the critical/bifurcation point is?


      If so, probe the reaction force and displacement and create a chart using them.

      I actually wondering what the total deformation contains ? I know the Total deformation gives a square root of the deformations in x,y,z planes for a given system.
      Here is the quiestion: for a column, does the Total deformation contain the axial deflection of the column ?
