This paper was investigating the buckling problem of reinforced concrete columns considering the reinforced concrete as bi – modular material. Governing differential equations was driven. The relation between the non-dimensional transverse deflection and non-dimensional distance between centroid axis and the neutral axis "eccentricity" was drawn to enable the solution of the governing differential equation. The new approach was verified with different experimental results and different codes of practice.
