k's in LRFD Third Edition

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
This is probably a stupid question, but what is the difference in the "k's" that are given for wide flange beams in the LRFD third edition.  If I look at a W24x68, I see a k of 1.09 in one column and 1 1/2 in another.  Is this an error or do they mean different things?
 
Thanks in advance,
 
Ken
