In this paper, we revisit the issues related to material and structural failures. In particular, we employ a similar bridging function between the typical structural failure, the so-called column buckling, and the typical material failure under compression, to link the low stress high cycle and the high stress low cycle fatigue. A part of the intention of this paper is to come up with simple formulas as guidelines in engineering practice for both material and structural failures in both static and dynamic situations.
