Columns exposed to lateral loads

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am desiging a tall steel column (55 feet) that will be receiving wind loads.
 
The exterior column flange is braced using the girts under positive pressure.   Can I consider the stiffener plates as a brace for the interior flange when the subject to negative pressure.
 
Thanks in advance for your input.
