I recently saw a calculation of a rigid frame with tapered members. In the
columns I saw the effective length factor K. When I asked if that was right,
that it should be Kgamma according to appendix F of AISC, they answered me
that "most" metal building manufacturers in the U.S. don't use that
Can anybody tell me what is the common design practice for metal buildings
in the US then? What do they use and how do they do it?
