RE: single angle members

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
AISC Engineering Journal has a very good article for equal single angles
in compression (EJ Second Qrt, 1991). It has a table for diferent angle
sizes and KL values. It's a must have ref. Please email me privately if
you need more info.
