Re: Allowable Stress

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
For plate bending about strong axis, if it's your question, I'm using general formula (0.6Fy) plus considering stability of plates under bending moments, e.g. formula in Roark's book.

I am foxed! In the ASD Steel Manual, where is the formula (or discussion) for
determining allowable bending stress for rectangular sections bending about
the strong axis? (Section F2 on page 5-48 covers allowable stress for weak
axis bending).
