Allowable Stress for I section about their weak Axis

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello,

Is this correct?

The Allowable Stress for I section about their weak Axis (z-z): 

           z____ |_____| _____z
                 |     |

compact section: b/(2tf)< 65/(Fy)^(1/2)   -> Fb=0.75Fy
non-compact:     b/(2tf)< 95/(Fy)^(1/2)   -> Fb=[1.075-0.005(bf/2tf)Fy^1/2]Fy
slender:         b/(2tf)> 95/(Fy)^(1/2)   -> Fb=0.60Fy*Qs

for: 195/(Fy/kc)^(1/2)< b/(2tf)< 195/(Fy/kc)^(1/2)
                       -> Qs=1.293-0.00309(b/t)(Fy/kc)^(1/2)

     b/(2tf)> 195/(Fy/kc)^(1/2)  -> Qs=26200kc/[Fy(b/t)^(1/2)]


where: kc=4.05/(h/t)^0.46 if h/t > 70, otherwise kc=1.0

In the evaluation of kc the value of h is the clear distance between flanges
(d-2*tf) and t the thickness of the flange(tf)? or h the flange width and t the
thickness of the web?



Thanks,
