LRFD Manual Ex 5.1 page 5-12 to 5-16

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

AISC LRFD 3rd ed. (first print) has a basic steel beam design strength
example 5.1 on a braced; 1/3 points braced; and ends brace only

On page 5-13,  the shear capacity should be multiplied by 0.6
according with Eq F2-1 (see page 16.1-35) which becomes 152.2 kips
instead of 254.  Is that correct? This item carries on 4 places in
this example.

On page 5-14, the Rho(b)M(r) is 205 kip-ft.  However, numbers used in
Eq F1-2 is 250.  Is that a typo?

On page 5-15, the 2*(L(b)/r(y)) inside the square root should be squared.

Is there an errata site for these kind of questions?
