Simulation with welded frame question

I have a model of a conferance table with a frame made from aluminum tubing. I'm trying to figure out if the table is pushed if it will buckle. Would I have to run a static test or buckle test? Do I have to call out all the welds? Also the bottom of the legs will not be fixed so do I have to model a floor and add some kind of friction between the floor and the table? I've done simple simulations before but this is more advanced for me.
