RE: built up steel column

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The only templates I have are proprietary company templates (with our logo, etc.) but I will gladly share how to calc the St. Venant constant for a built-up section (3-Plate welded section).
bfo = outer flange width
tfo = outer flange thickness
bfi = outer flange width
tfi = outer flange thickness
d = depth of section
h = web depth = 4 - tfo - tfi
tw = web thickness
^3 = to the 3rd power (i.e. cubed)
J = (bfo*tfo^3 + bfi*tfi^3 + h*tw^3) / 3
