Re: Preliminary sizing as per CAN/CSA-16-01

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Table 4-4 is the "unit factored compressive resistance" Cr/A.  What are you referring to?

Subject: Preliminary sizing as per CAN/CSA-16-01

My question is regarding preliminary sizing of the beam-column as per CAN/CSA-16-01.
 
In the Canadian Handbook of Steel Construction, in the table 4-4, different values of  Cf /# Cy (ratio) are given for different classes (1 to 3). For selection of columns, this ratio should be equal to 1.0. For beams ( no axial compression) this ratio should be minimum. For beam-column element again this ratio should approach to 1.0. Am I correct ?
 
Please help.
 
Thanks in advance,
 
Ritesh
