Axial load on stair stringers?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Can anyone assist me in getting some literature concerning analysis of stair
stringers.  My understanding is that stair stringers have axial load due to
the slope.  Becuase of this axial load, we have to resist any thrust forces
that occurs at the bottom of the stairs.  Can anyone please correct me if I
am wrong.

Thanks in advance
