Column with torsion

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
In a stroke of brilliance, one of my clients attached
a fitting through the fireproofing to a WF column in
his (my) new building.  It sustains about 7000 pounds
of tension horizontally, acting in the strong axis of
the column near the tip of the flange.

The bending I know how to analyze.  Can anyone offer
some guidance as to how the torsion component affects
my column interaction?  Thanks for any help.
