Re: strong axis bending

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

In Salmon & Johnson's third edition, the formula is on page 362, Chapter 6, 
formula 6.14.28.  For combined bending and axial, the "k" is replace with 
k(c) based on Bruce Johnston and Brockenbrough's book published for U. S. 
Steel.  I will send you the name of the book tomorrow.  (The book is in the 
office.)  It has various values for k(c) for various proportions of axial 
load to moment.

Hope this helps.

>>Thank you, Roger,  Yes, rectangular section bending about strong axis do 
not have much strength.  However, I am looking at a computer generated result 
of a problem, wherein I am tempted to perform a manual check.  It deals with 
a gusset plate design in a lug supporting a vessel, where the short segment 
of the gusset will behave as a beam-column.  Thus after manual computation of 
actual bending and axial stresses at the critical section, I had to perform 
the checks per equation in Chapter "H'" of AISC manual.  And, that is where I 
got stymied.

Incidentally, I don't have Galambos's book, but do you knoe if the formula 
you have referred is in the classic book by Salmon & Johnson?
