**What is a Column Calculator**?

A column calculator is a tool used to determine the load-carrying capacity of a structural column based on various parameters such as material properties, dimensions, and loading conditions.

**Why Use a Column Calculator**?

Column calculators are essential for engineers and architects in designing structures.

They help ensure that columns can safely support the loads imposed on them.

## Column Calculator

This calculator estimates the load-carrying capacity of a structural column.

**How to Use a Column Calculator:**

- Select the material of the column (e.g., steel, concrete).
- Input the dimensions of the column (e.g., 10x10).
- Input the applied load in kips (kips is a unit of force equal to 1,000 pounds).
- Click the "Calculate" button to perform the calculation.
- The calculator provides the estimated column capacity in kips.

**Example Calculation:**

Suppose you have a steel column with dimensions 10x10 and an applied load of 20 kips.

The column capacity can be calculated using these values is 30.00 kips.

Adjust the inputs and calculation formulas based on specific requirements for accurate results.
