Column Base Plates

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have 2 columns in an existing 6 story building that we are adding 2 new 
floors to. The base plates are overstressed by conventional methods. I 
suspect they maybe OK by finite element method and would like to avoid 
reinforcing them for the owner if I can prove they are OK.

Would someone, who has the new Risa Base Plate Program (which I believe 
does finite element), offer to run these 2 axially loaded columns for me?
