Are you bending about a major axis?  The ASD section you refer to has two distinct sets of provisions.  For major axis bending the calculations are pretty simple with allowable stress based on b/t ratios.  Otherwise, tough it out and do it right ;-)

Subject: Steel angle with pointed load

 I tried to use Enecal, to selected steel angle under pointed load - but no luck.  I checked the ASD page 5-300 and up and It's so confused with tons of variables. Is there a simple formular some where that I can use to calculate the load capcity of steel angle under concentrated load.  I try to find the bending stress and other results.

Thanks in advance.
