Q: CFS Column with Fixed Base?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Okay, before you snort, guffaw, or otherwise evidence your disbelief that
one could pose a question so preposterous, remember that I'm (with deep
fascination, I assure you) endeavoring to get up to speed on CFS design, and
so the preposterous must invariably come up from time to time.

I want to make a "box section" column that will able to resist moments at
the base. I'm not sure if this is feasible, unless some sort of bizarre shop
fabrication were involved--which I want to get away from if at all possible.

Anyone have any ideas?
