buckling at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Mode of failure under compression of a structural component that is thin (see shell structure) or much longer than wide (e.g., post, column, leg bone). L. Euler first worked out in 1757 the theory of why such members buckle. The definition by T. Young of the elastic modulus significantly propelled building construction science forward. The elastic theory formed the basis of structural analysis until World War II, when the behavior of bomb-damaged buildings forced the modification of some of the theory's underlying assumptions.
