In accordance with the boundary conditions, the buckling length to be considered in the calculation of a column/beam varies.
When the column is hinged at both ends, the effective length is equal to the actual length of the column. However, when it is on a cantilever, the effective length is twice the actual length. The case of both ends fixed is the one that reduces this effective length the most, being half of the actual length.
