This is an oldie at this point, but a late response is probably better than
none at all. Sorry for the delay -- it got way down in my inbox. In case you

As you noted, thr printed equation makes no sense. Somehow in the transition
from the typeset page to the printed page, the "EDI" botched. The equation

t_sub_p min = (L * sqrt Fy)/(234 K) >= 1/4 in.

This is derived from the coped beam buckling equation on page 9-9 with
lambda set equal to 0.7 (for Q=1, which means yielding occurs before
buckling), h_sub_o = L and t_sub_w = t_sub_p.

Thanks for pointing this out. We will include it in the errata list.
