Re: Effective length of columns

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If you are referring to K factors, we use the alignment chart for framing columns given in the AISC Steel Manual. However, this manual does not address the stiffness reduction factors of framing beams with non rigid end conditions. The classic book by Galambos is another valuable resource.
